Helm (shoulder) is not expected to play this weekend.

Helm appeared to be on the verge of returning to the lineup earlier in the week, but now it looks like he will be held out of both of the Red Wings’ games this weekend. The Red Wings are off to a 3-0 start, so there is no reason to rush Helm back into action. Look for him to return next week.

Helm (shoulder) skated on a regular line on Monday; could play on Tuesday.

Helm was expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a separated shoulder. He has nearly reached the end of his timetable, which suggests that he could be back tomorrow vs. the Lightning. If Helm is set to return, the Red Wings will need to make a roster move.

Helm will miss 2-4 weeks with a separated shoulder.

Helm suffered a grade 1 slight separated shoulder in the first day of training camp on Thursday. Helm has had a difficult time staying healthy throughout his career and this is not the way he wanted to start his 2015-16 season. If he misses just two weeks, he could be ready for the Red Wings season opener, but if he misses four weeks he would miss the first four or five games of the Red Wings’ season.

Helm (concussion) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

Helm confirmed that he would be in the lineup tomorrow afternoon, but Mike Babcock was less committal about Helm playing. Coach Babcock said that Helm will take pre-game warmups and then they will see how Helm feels before deciding if he plays. He would centre the fourth line with Cory Emmerton and Landon Ferraro on his wings with Teemu Pulkkinen taking a seat.
