2021 Salary: $3,850,000
Advantages of Signing
Darren Helm is a veteran leader of a young Detroit Red Wings locker room. After completing his 14th season in Detroit, Helm is still an effective penalty killer and terrific skater. If signed, Detroit should be able to sign Helm for a hometown discount.
Disadvantages of Signing
Helm takes up a roster spot that could be used for a younger and more affordable prospect. His lack of scoring will hinder the possibility of an extension.
Darren Helm will not be offered a contract by Detroit.
