10 Minute Misconduct

Darren Helm plays on with broken nose

Rate this topic

30 posts in this topic

Didn't even know he broke his nose yesterday...

Helm got hurt his first shift when he was hit by Flyers forward Ian Laperriere (the same guy who knocked Nicklas Lidstrom into the boards while a member of the Colorado Avalanche).

X-rays taken immediately after the game revealed a small break.

"If it's broken, it's broken," Helm said. "It happened my first five seconds."

Helm scored a goal, and was part of the Wings' overall best line, along with Dan Cleary and Patrick Eaves.

That dude IS heart. Exactly the kind of player that belongs on this team.

Don't most players play on with broken noses? I can remember at least two occasions in a game where they broke it early in the game and came back later in the same game.

That sort of dedication deserves a long term contract, stat!

Why wouldn't he have? A broken nose is not cause to miss a shift unless it's to get the bleeding stopped.

I still think Lappy should be suspended for that hit.

seriously? it is a 4 min high sticking penalty

He's a hockey player, I wouldn't expect anything less.

Although I love Helm, he never takes a shift off and is pretty much a perfect energy player(if only he could fight :unsure: ).

Charging, I don't think the stick went up... is it a 5 min major as the second choice? It wasn't as bad as some past hits, but it wasn't clean in the least.

I was at the game and did not have the benefit of an instant replay...but it certainly looked like a big time elbow from my vantage point

It's extremely painful.

It's extremely painful.

... compared to a hangnail.

Seriously though, a broken nose is not that big of a deal.

I wish they could sign Helm for the rest of his NHL career.

Who was the last person that got a standing ovation at the Joe for a penalty kill?

I'm not belittling his game but when I broke my nose five minutes before going to work selling stereo equipment I managed the whole day more or less fine (still talked, and wheeled fine)... even when my eyes got puffy and started to blacken hours after the accidental elbow.

Yup. A broken nose isn't reason for a boxer to quit, much less a hockey player.

This isn't the NBA, nor MLB (thank God)...Helm just carried on like it was nothing; something hockey players have done for a long - long time :thumbup:
