AP Source: Detroit Red Wings keep Helm, Marchenko
DETROIT (AP) A person familiar with the moves says the Detroit Red Wings have agreed to deals with forward Darren Helm and defenseman Alexey Marchenko.
The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the agreements haven't been announced.
Detroit retained Helm with a five-year contract, counting $3.85 million against the salary cap each season. The Red Wings are keeping Marchenko for two more seasons, taking $1.45 million off their cap each year.
Helm had 13 goals and 26 points last season. He has 72 goals and 90 assists since making his debut during the 2007-08 season.
Marchenko is coming off his first full season in the NHL. He played in 66 games last season, scoring twice and adding nine assists.
