The Next Step For Filip Larsson

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Larsson is squarely focused on Grand Rapids and next season, when at the development camp.

“I know it’s a good opportunity,” Larsson said of playing with the Griffins. “I’m not looking at NHL this upcoming season. I want to make the AHL team and get as many games as possible and develop.

“In future years, maybe have that opportunity (in the NHL).”

If Larsson adapts to the pro game as quickly as he did from junior to college hockey, the Wings’ organization will be thrilled.

Two years ago, Larsson starred in junior, going 18-10-0 for Tri-City in the USHL, with a tidy 1.65 goals-against average and .941 save percentage.

“People have told me that but I haven’t really thought about Detroit,” Larsson said. “I’m looking at the next step (AHL). It’s not the NHL.

“Right now it’s making the AHL team, playing games and developing.”

The kid seems to have a good head on his shoulders. He was a fun watch during the frozen four.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
