How Dylan Larkin’s time golfing makes him a perfect fit as Detroit Red Wings captain

DETROIT, MI – A trip to a beautiful golf course may help the Detroit Red Wings on the ice.

Dylan Larkin is poised to be named team captain before the 2021 season. It hasn’t been announced yet by general manager Steve Yzerman, but it’d be shocking if it was anyone else. The two have bonded since Yzerman returned to the Wings in April 2019, chatting regularly about what it means to be a good Red Wing, what it means to do things right.

One of those things is making sure a teammate feels welcome, feels like he is part of the camaraderie.
