Red Wings' Darren Helm cleared to push harder in rehab

“Yeah, I talked to another doctor,” Helm said at Joe Louis Arena today. “He’s kind of confirmed what a few other doctors have said. There’s nothing really structurally wrong with it. I can kind of start pushing things and progress and try to push through that pain that I’m having.

“I’m not going to have any big problems with it. Obviously, if I go too hard too fast, things will get a little messy. If I keep a steady pace and be smart about it, I shouldn’t have any problems.”

But he will not accompany the team on its two-game trip to play the Phoenix Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche.

Helm said he has been skating on his own for about a week. Today was the first time he was able to take shots with the goalies before the team practiced. Helm said he’ll continue to skate by himself this week.

Helm is optimistic he could be back before the end of the regular season.

“Hoping to just get back when I get back,” he said. “Hopefully, when I do, there’s some games left where I can play.
