The Americans may be packing their bags if they fall to the Russians in Thursday's quarterfinal match anyway, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. There's no reason to believe Larkin's groin issue is overly serious, so he should be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp. The 22-year-old pivot will be looking to build on a 2018-19 campaign in which he set career highs in goals (32) and points (73) in 76 contests.
