Highlights
2-time NCAA (CCHA) Champion 2

Helminen is a smart center with a strong all-around game. Has good puck-handling ability and hard wrist shot. Creates room for his linemates offensively. Isn't a big or physical player, though. Sometimes hang on to the puck for too long and do too much by himself.
