Darren Helm was frustrated towards the end of the 2015-16 campaign due to what he felt was a lack of communication about his role.
Helm talked it over with coach Jeff Blashill and GM Ken Holland in June though. "Sometimes I just didn’t feel like the message was relayed to me clearly," Helm said. "I didn’t know if I was moving (lines) because I wasn’t playing well or doing things wrong or matchups. I had lots of talks with Kenny and lots of talks with Blash, and we just opened up a better line of communication between us (Helm and Blashill), and I feel confident things would be a little better between him and I, and we could make things work." Helm signed a five-year, $19.25 million contract with Detroit in July. He's being penciled in to serve as the third-line center. Sep 14 - 9:11 AM
