DETROIT — With the success of the Wings’ third line it brings up memories of the Grind Line, which begs to question when will the line of Darren Helm, Justin Abdelkader and Drew Miller get a nickname of their own.
“I haven’t heard anything going around,” Helm said. “I’m not a nickname guy. You have to ask Bert or Cleary, they’re usually pretty quick to come up with something.”
There has been a suggestion of the HAM line floated around, taking a letter from each of their last names.
“Yeah, I heard that, too, actually,” Helm said. “It works. Not the best one, we could have a couple of callers come up with something better than that.”
The line combined for two goals and four assists Thursday.
