  • Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Could succeed Zetterberg as captain

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/15/18) Larkin is ready to assume a leadership role following news that team captain Henrik Zetterberg has decided to retire due to a chronic back injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    This doesn't necessarily mean Larkin will inherit the captaincy -- at least right away -- but he's still a solid candidate for that spot, even as a 22-year-old, due to his tremendous work ethic and infectious attitude on and off the ice. "I don't think you need to wear a letter to be a leader and I tried last year to take a step forward in my third season," Larkin said. "I thought it was time to be a leader, be an impact player on this team. I have the same mentality for this year. Is wearing a letter everything? No. It's doing the right things, contributing to the team and winning games." Expect the Michigan native to wear the 'A' for alternate captain if team brass decides to designate a veteran as team captain (or no primary captain at all).

    Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Garners five-year contract renewal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/10/18) Larkin signed a five-year contract extension with the Red Wings on Friday. Craig Custance of The Athletic Detroit reports the deal is valued at $6.1 million annually.

    There was never any doubt that Larkin would re-up with his hometown team, as the speedster is expected to inherit the captaincy from Henrik Zetterberg (back) once the Wings legend hangs up his skates for good. Larkin has posted 140 points (56 goals, 84 assists) over 242 career contests at the highest level. He should have no problem once again unleashing 200-plus shots over a full season, lining up down the middle with a newfound sense of how to best harness his speed to the benefit of his linemates.

    Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Hints extension could come soon

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/20/18) Larkin remains unsigned as a restricted free agent, but the Red Wings are not worried about their ability to re-sign the speedy forward, MLive.com reports.

    Larkin is said to be seeking a six-year contract extension worth approximately $36 million, and while he's the last one that GM Ken Holland needs to get back on the books ahead of the 2018-19 season, neither side seems concerned that a new deal isn't yet in place. "It's heading in the right direction for sure," Larkin said. "I think it'll be soon." While the pivot experienced the dreaded sophomore slump in 2016-17, the Michigan native more than made up for it last season, pouring on 16 goals and a career-high 47 assists over 82 games. It's rare that a player with only three years of NHL experience would earn a long-term deal, but Larkin is a natural leader who wants to be with the Wings for the long haul.

    Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Could land five-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/11/18) Larkin is the final Red Wings forward to be re-signed ahead of the 2017-18 season, The Detroit News reports, adding that the speedy pivot could net a five-year deal.

    The Wings extended Anthony Mantha's contract for two years and $6.6 million Wednesday, and while he's certainly an important part of Detroit's rebuild, it appears that GM Ken Holland is saving the biggest signing for last. Currently, the team only has $2.87 million in available cap space -- according to CapFriendly -- but Johan Franzen (concussion) assuredly will remain on long-term injured reserve, and there's even speculation that team captain Henrik Zetterberg (back) could sit out for the entire season to join Franzen on LTIR. Larkin, who has emerged as a leader of this proud franchise, registered a career-high 47 assists and 63 points last season. All signs point to him inheriting the captaincy when Zetterberg's ready to retire.

    Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Pumps brakes at Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/9/18) Larkin has chipped in two goals on nine shots through three games for Team USA as part of the 2018 World Championship.

    Larkin and Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson are the only Americans to have scored twice in the international tournament so far. However, the former has cooled off since striking twice against Team Canada in a thrilling shootout win in the opening contest. Larkin will look to get back on track against Latvia on Thursday.
