The Fairview, Alberta native capped a four-year WHL career that included 263 games, good for 26th in franchise history. He appeared in 207 consecutive regular season games to end his career, including all 72 in both of the last two season, during which he served as team captain. He played in 23 career playoff games, scoring 10 points (2G-8A).

Helgesen was the 12th Chiefs defenseman to reach 100 career points with 101 (18G-83A), highlighted by back-to-back 29-point campaigns over the last two years. He also recorded 275 penalty minutes.
