Per former Red Wing and current analyst Aaron Ward, the Red Wings have brought back forward Darren Helm.
Detroit Red Wings and Darren Helm agree to terms on a 5 year/ $3.85M AAV #DRW

He took a hometown discount so the AAV isn’t bad but I don’t like the signing in general. Bringing back another bottom-six center who’s a stretch as a second-line winger doesn’t help the team. It doesn’t matter that the term is terrible, the contract shouldn’t exist at all.
