Drew Miller could return against Hawks; Helm out for the series

ROMULUS — Forward Drew Miller had the cast removed from broken right hand Sunday and hopes to available this series with the Chicago Blackhawks.

“I don’t have a timetable yet,” Miller said. “I need to talk to the hand specialist and see how things go. I’m hoping to be in this series for sure.”

Miller did not require surgery to repair the break of his fourth metacarpal bone on his ring finger after getting hit with a puck on April 20.

“It’s just over three weeks now so we’ll see how it goes, but I’m hoping to be back in this series,” Miller said. “I don’t know about Game 1. I don’t want to put a timetable on it. I don’t want to say yes or no on any game in the series, but we’ll see how it goes.”

Miller has been skating with the team for some time and handling puck.

Wings coach Mike Babcock also said there’s no chance of forward Darren Helm returning this series.
