The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday assigned center Darren Helm to the Grand Rapids Griffins for conditioning.

Helm, 26, has appeared in 249 regular-season games with Detroit since the 2007-08 season, amassing 83 points (32 goals, 51 assists) and 54 penalty minutes. The 5-foot-11, 192-pound forward has also played in 65 playoff games for the Wings, including 18 games during the team’s 2008 Stanley Cup championship run, producing 16 points (10 goals, six assists) and 18 penalty minutes.

Due to various injuries, Helm has only appeared in one game since Apr. 11, 2012.

Before joining the Red Wings, the Winnipeg, Man., native skated in 122 games with the Griffins from 2007-09, tallying 68 points (29 goals, 39 assists) and 54 penalty minutes.
