Maybe one of the fastest skaters in the NHL today, Darren Helm was drafted from the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League. He was a late round pick because of how small he was in his draft year, and he didn't possess the same amount of speed as he has today.
Despite only playing in seven games during his rookie season, Helm was a regular when the play-offs began and played an important role on the 2008 championship team. The same thing occurred in 2009, when Helm only played 16 regular season games but dressed for every play-off game.
Helm took a big step forward in the second half of the season this year, showing an offensive side that many didn't think he had. Considering that he has only played two full NHL seasons, Helm still has the ability to improve on his impressive sophomore season.
