Helm has MCL sprain, out 4-6 weeks

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
