The ultimate glue guy is sticking around.
The Colorado Avalanche have signed Darren Helm to a one-year extension with an AAV of $1.25 million.
Helm, 35, spent over a decade with the Detroit Red Wings before joining the Colorado Avalanche last summer. Helm had 15 points in 68 regular season games but capped it off with a five-point run in 20 playoff games.
Helm's teammates loved him for his ability to play a physical, energetic style that can kill penalties and contribute the odd goal from time to time. He had a career-high 15 goals and 33 points during the 2014-15 season with the Red Wings.
It's going to be a busy summer for the Avalanche, and this is just the beginning.
