Larkin is expected to center the second line with Justin Abdelkader and Anthony Mantha come Opening Night, MLive.com reports

Coach Jeff Blashill was quick to send him back to the wing when the going got tough last year, but it appears the skater is more confident as he's gained more experience. "More than ever I feel like I can really be creative and use my speed, use all my skills to make my linemates better and make our team better," Larkin said Friday, during the commencement of training camp.
