Larkin on Wings captaincy: ‘I feel ready for it’

DETROIT, MI – Dylan Larkin believes he’s ready to wear the “C” for the Detroit Red Wings, but he’s not allowing the possibility to distract him ahead of his fifth season with the team.

“I feel ready for it,” Larkin told TSN of the captaincy at the Power Edge Pro camp on Tuesday. “I think it’s something that I can’t focus on. I can’t lose sleep about it. I can’t control it. I just try to be myself and play the game that I love and play with a lot of passion and everyone in the NHL has been a leader at some point in their careers. I’m lucky that we have great veteran leadership and it’s taken a lot of pressure off of me.

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.
