Larkin aims to be ‘way better player’ for Red Wings this season

August 1, 2018 10:50 am

DETROIT, MI – Dylan Larkin could have coasted, taken a loss and relaxed. It was a Thursday night in July, and this was the Eastside Elite All-Star Classic, a 3-on-3 tournament in a summer league in suburban Detroit. His team was trailing 2-0 in the losers bracket. Cold beverages awaited.

But the Detroit Red Wings center was a main attraction at an event that packed Mount Clemens Ice Arena and raised money for ALS, autism, concussions and the Special Olympics. He’d won it last year, the league title too. He didn’t want his team to be the first eliminated this year, especially not against Red Wings teammate Danny DeKeyser.

One of the greatest things about Kurt and all the people with KO is that they bring in guys like Barry Karn and all these different skating and skill people that come in and help us to develop. They care about us off the ice but they obviously have to care about us on the ice and they bring in people to work with us to help us be better and I think that’s special.
