Red Wings Need Larkin to Step Up in New Era

September 26, 2018 12:48 pm

DETROIT, MI – Dylan Larkin has suddenly become a veteran at the age of 22 for the Detroit Red Wings.

“It could be the first time I’m not the youngest guy on the team,” Larkin said. “That’s why I’m growing out this beard.”

The rebuilding Red Wings are desperately hoping the talented, two-way centre can quickly become a leader on and off the ice. They suffered a setback before the season even started when captain Henrik Zetterberg’s back injury ended his career.

“It’s a massive loss,” general manager Ken Holland acknowledged. “No one person is going to be able to replace one of the greatest Red Wings of all time.”

As an aspiring professional hockey player, one of the most challenging things that both the athlete and family face is selecting the right person to help guide us through the journey.  For our family, this proved to be very true.  We considered it very fortunate that John was introduced and came to work with Kurt.  Since we began working with Kurt and his staff, they have given us guidance and sound advice every step of the way.  Kurt’s unparalleled knowledge of the hockey world and professional demeanor gave us the utmost confidence that John’s career is being managed properly.  We can’t imagine anyone else filling the role that he does for our family.  Lastly, we highly recommend Kurt and KO Sports to any young athlete that has the dream of becoming a professional hockey player.
