Last time I heard any updates on Helm's condition, he was feeling better but still taking it day-to-day. He announced that he hoped/planned to skate during the training camp this summer and would *hopefully* be back to normal by the end of training camp.
The little nagging voice in the back of my head still has me worried about Helmer, though.
He seems to have a knack for finding the most bizarre ways of getting injured, at the least convenient times. I guess I'm just crossing my fingers that we won't get any more bad news regarding Helm before the start of the season.
I originally started getting worried toward the end of last season when people began saying that his back injuries could, in theory, spell the end of his NHL career, and I'm beginning to get more and more and worried!
He is my favorite player currently playing (or on a roster, at least) in the NHL right now, has been for probably 3-4 years now. I own a Helm home jersey, away jersey, and multiple jersey shirts. I feel like I have been going through Helm withdrawals this past year and I can't take it anymore.
Anyone out there have any updates on his current status? Interviews, press coverage, anything? I could use a little sliver of good Helm news to set my mind at ease! :]
