Dylan Larkin's Season

11/22/2021 at 3:17pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

How good has Dylan Larkin been offensively this season?

To put it in perspective, Larkin's goal Saturday in Arizona was his ninth of the season.

Last season — and, yes, there were variables such as a shortened NHL season because of the pandemic and Larkin's injury late in the season that forced him to miss games — he scored all of nine goals in 44 games.

Larkin matched that mark Saturday in only his 16th game.

Talking in training camp, there was a determination and resolve in Larkin's voice to smash last season's meager offensive numbers.

He's accomplishing that, early on.

"He felt like he has more to offer and he has played really good this year when he’s played," coach Jeff Blashill said.

That's another part to the puzzle.

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.
