Good Bye, Movember!
The Red Wings' Darren Helm

As Red Wings’ players filed onto Red Bird III Thursday afternoon for a short flight to Buffalo where they’ll face the Sabres Friday night, one thing was quite clear: Movember is over.

Several players throughout the league, including the Red Wings, participated in Movember, growing mustaches to bring awareness to men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

With the exception of one noticeable objector, the Wings who grew facial hair during the month-long campaign were clean-shaven on the first day of December.

Not only did forward Darren Helm grow a ’stache he let his dish-water blonde hair grow below his collar.

“I figured if I had a mustache I might as well have long, disgusting out-of-control hair,” Helm said Wednesday morning. “When I get a chance I'll probably trim it up a bit and the mustache will probably go.”

But somewhere along the way, Helm had a change of heart, trimming up the hair and the mustache for the Wings’ road trip, which begins in Buffalo before heading to Colorado and St. Louis.
