Seeing it in order, in print, really spells out what a terrible couple of years Helm has had.
Helm expects to be out at least another week with possible concussion-like symptoms.
He had a little bit of a headache following the Feb. 27 game in Ottawa, when he bounced his head off the ice hard and was grazed on the chin from another check.
But he felt fine during the four-day break and continued practicing. He played the first two periods Tuesday in New Jersey before leaving the game.
This issue is the latest in what has been an incredibly rough two-year stretch for the fast-skating center.
Helm suffered a sprained MCL on March 17, 2012.
He returned in the playoff opener against Nashville before having tendons in his forearm sliced by a skate blade, knocking him out of the postseason.
His cheek bone was fractured by a deflected puck at an informal practice during the lockout.
His hurt his back lifting weights a few days before training camp in 2013, an injury that limited him to one game during the lockout-shortened season.
This season, he missed the first 14 games with a pulled groin. He returned for 15 games before suffering a shoulder injury that idled him for 11 games more. He came back for one game before sitting out seven more with a groin injury.
He said this is the first time he’s dealt with head issues.
