Helm has MCL sprain, out 4-6 weeks

Rate this topic

If you look at the replay of his injury very carefully you can see that the knee doesn't bend awkwardly like other ACL/MCL injuries. ACL injuries can spotted just by placing your hand on your good knee and comparing it to the bad one. I don't believe he has a tear in his knee based on the replay. I think he will be back in 2-3 weeks at the max.

I was thinking the same thing....possibly a really severe hyperextension.

Helm would be a major loss,especially in the playoffs when he elevates his game even more.

I think a reasonable replacement would be Connors, who's nearly as fast,and works equally hard.

He hasn't called to let me know how the MRI went :lol:

Wish we could hear something soon and I really hope it's nothing more than him needing some ice and rest to get back.

this makes me sad. I am going to my first game in 11 years at the Joe on March 30, and was really looking forward to seeing Helm play. Get well soon, kiddo.

Playoffs start april 11th.? So that gives a bet case senario (4weeks) that helm is ready for about half way through our first series depending on how long it goes. Hmmm

Wow, could be as late as the first of May. :scared: Hope he doesn't push it and try to come back too soon and cause further injury. His speed is his greatest asset.

Devastating, but take a pass on the rest of the year and rehab the knee please. Can't afford anything less than 100%.

This is bad news. :( As much as I'd like him back on the ice, I would rather him take as long as he needs so that it's healed up. Get well soon Darren!

whatever happened to Eaves? He hasn't been mentioned in a hot minute. I know he got hurt bad... but..?

Concussion. No need to rush it and ruin his career

MCL is the best structure in your knee to hurt actually ... its painful and not fun, but regardless of the degree of strain or tear almost never requires surgical repair and typically recovers full ROM and strength. Better than getting a meniscus chopped out or an ACL rebuilt by a long shot. I certainly hope Helm hasnt played his last game of the season - if he comes back it wont be until the 2nd round at the earliest.

Out with concussion-like symptoms. I'd be surprised if he's back this season.

Its a bummer, but Helm could be back in round 1 or round 2 of the playoffs. Thats good news. Its better than an MCL or ACL tear thats for sure.
