Red Wings forward Darren Helm is still angry that his arm was cut in Game One of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.
Helm addressed the media this afternoon for the first time since suffering the injury against Nashville. He only played 3:08 in Game One and was rushed to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center for surgery to repair a sliced tendon in his right forearm.
"I'm not really to happy with anything that's going on right now with me," said Helm. "I don't think I've really gotten over what happened. I'm still pretty angry with the situation."
Helm had just returned to the lineup after missing a stretch due to a sprained left knee suffered against San Jose on March 17.
"It still hurts quite a bit," said Helm. "Pain-wise, it still hurts a lot. Having to watch, again, is probably the worst thing of all. The way I battled back from my knee and to have this happen in the first period, it's pretty tough."
Helm is expected to make a full recovery from his most recent injury and be ready to play with his teammates when they take the ice for training camp in September.
