Larkin was dealing with a neck injury but will be good to go for the start of next season, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Larkin was critical of the crosscheck to the neck he received from Dallas' Jamie Benn telling reporters, "I don't really ever see a time to crosscheck a guy when he's down." With the lost games and shortened season, Larking failed to reach the 30-point mark for the first time in his six-year NHL career, ending the season with just nine goals and 14 assists. With a full 82-game campaign, the 24-year-old center should be capable of getting back to the 20-30 goal scorer he has been in the past and should offer top-end fantasy value.

GM Steve Yzerman added that Larkin didn't need surgery and is expected to be fully ready for the beginning of next season. Larkin concluded 2020-21 with just 23 points in 44 games.
Larkin (undisclosed) will miss the remainder of the season. The 24-year-old forward will be reevaluated in two weeks.
The Red Wings aren't going to make the playoffs, so the fact that they've elected to shut their franchise cornerstone down for the year isn't exactly surprising. Larkin will finish the abbreviated 2020-21 campaign having racked up nine goals and 23 points in 44 games. At this point there's no reason to believe Larkin won't be fully healthy ahead of next season's training camp.
Larkin (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Stars.
Larkin will undergo additional testing Friday to determine the extent of his injury, and an update on his status is expected to be released Saturday. The Red Wings only have eight games remaining on their schedule, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Larkin get shut down for the season if his injury isn't minor.
Larkin (undisclosed) was injured late in the third period of Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Head coach Jeff Blashill didn't have an update on Larkin's status after the game. The 24-year-old center had scored a goal just a couple minutes before he was hurt.

The 24-year-old got the Red Wings on the board 6:15 into the game, tying the game when Petr Mrazek kicked a rebound directly into Larkin's body and it ricocheted into the net.

Larkin managed an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers, but he skated to a minus-2 rating and shouldered the blame for the unfavorable outcome. "I had the puck on my stick twice and gave it to them and it's in the back of our net," Larkin said in a report by Ansar Khan of MLive.com. "That's on me. I take a lot of responsibility for that. That's not the way we have to play, not the way we were playing and it's not acceptable."
The 24-year-old captain is not shy when it comes to admitting his own mistakes, and that's one of the many reasons why Larkin is such a special player. He's added six goals and 13 assists, albeit with a minus-10 rating and the worst shooting percentage (5.6) of his career.
Larkin picked up two assists in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Larkin has been skating with the team, and he even took line rushes with the first line Sunday. Nevertheless, he's still in danger of missing a fifth straight game.

Larkin is focused on improving his defense, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The 24-year-old captain leads all Red Wings with 11 points (four goals, seven assists) through 21 contests, but that's a low figure relative to the rest of the league, with plenty of teams watching their star players exceed point-per-game marks in the early going. Nonetheless, Wings coach Jeff Blashill stressed the need for Larkin to improve defensively. "For Dylan to be the type of player he wants to be, which is considered a high-end player in this league, he's got to be a great defender," Blashill said. Not helping matters is that burgeoning offensive linemate Tyler Bertuzzi has been out for 12 consecutive games and isn't expected to return in February.
Larkin registered an assist in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Panthers.
Larkin has his work cut out for him as the Red Wings are last within the Central Division, but it's hard to rattle the 24-year-old captain, who just snapped a four-game pointless skid. Larkin and Co. will have a chance to exact revenge against the Panthers on Saturday.
