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.
