Justin Abdelkader And Dylan Larkin Headed To World Cup Camp

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Justin Abdelkader is excited about representing his country again. Dylan Larkin is looking forward to joining peers from both sides of the border on the international stage.

Abdelkader and Larkin are among seven Detroit Red Wings participating in the eight-team World Cup of Hockey in Toronto.

Abdelkader and Team USA start training camp Monday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Larkin and Team North American – consisting of the top 23-and-under U.S. and Canadian-born players – begin camp Monday in Montreal.

The tournament runs from Sept. 17-Oct. 1 at Air Canada Centre.

"It's great for the league, great for all the countries involved, the players," Abdelkader said. "It's a good way to kind of kick the season off."

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
