After spending time in the minors with the New York Rangers, Darren Helm has found himself in the NHL.
He has played six games with the Los Angeles Kings and is playing in the AHL with the Albany Devils.
I didn’t even know what the hell was going on,” Helm said after the game against the Devils.
“I was playing with some guys that I wasn’t really that familiar with, so I didn.
You’re not good enough.’ “
So I got to the rink and I was like, ‘I can’t play with you guys.
You’re not good enough.’
And that’s when I knew it was time to move on.”
Helm played in the final five games of the season with the Rangers and went 0-for-5 with two goals and five assists in 18 games.
He was a healthy scratch in the first round of the playoffs.
“The last three or four games of my season, I was out there, and I thought I was just playing,” Helm added.
“And I was so frustrated that I got out there and I couldn’t play.
And you know what, I’m not bitter about that.
I think it was one of the most frustrating things I’ve ever had to go through.
