Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock calls Darren Helm "an everydayer," meaning he always gives maximum effort and has winning on his mind. With last season as proof, the Red Wings need Helm to show up every day in order to win enough games to maintain their Stanley Cup contender status.
"The interesting stat is what was our record last year with Helm in the lineup and what was our record without him?" Babcock said. "You're going to be shocked. That right there writes your whole article."
