The stream has been archived and it was just Larkin followed by Blashill, no Yzerman.

Alternates have a bunch of communication and off ice responsibilities.  Even helping other players with family or logistical stuff.  I think both our alternates are good choices.

Well he is the most veteran on the team along with Flip. Flip strikes me as a pretty quiet guy, so maybe Frans deserved the nod and they wanted to couple a veteran alternate with a young cap.

He kept his A, and I don’t see another player worthy of stripping it off his jersey to hand it out, not saying he deserves it.
