BREAKING NEWS: Larkin steps away

Reports are coming out of Detroit this morning that Captain Dylan Larkin is stepping away from the Detroit Red Wings for personal reasons per Detroit head coach Jeff Blashill

This does come on the heels of Larkin not being available on Tuesday against Montreal, also citing personal reasons. He also hasn’t practiced with the team for the past 3 days due to dealing with this personal matter.

Larkin was named The Red Wings Captain on the opening night of last season, the first Michigan native to be named captain in the history of the franchise. He is only the second American to be named captain since Reed Larson in 1982. General Manager of the Wings Steve Yzerman said of Larkin being named Captain “We feel with our team, the age he’s at, where we are as an organization, his maturity as a hockey player, he has a lot of attributes that make him a natural leader and perfect fit for us as our captain.”

We’ve seen more and more players especially this season putting their health and personal lives before hockey. It’s definitely a positive thing due to the stigma around mental health in sports and how just like with anything else in life you always have to put your health and happiness first. Whatever the reason may be for stepping away we here at Inside The Rink hope for the best for Dylan.
