Health Update From Dylan Larkin

08/10/2021 at 7:38pm EDT

from Max Bultman of The Athletic,

Larkin has been skating for about a month now, he said, and just got cleared to shoot last week, so his return-to-play process is not yet complete. But he looked fluid as he skated through drills Tuesday and was in good spirits afterward.

“I feel great,” Larkin said. “Kind of a little blessing, I think, with how my summer’s been — it’s been a lot of rehab, a lot of recovery. I think I needed that.”

In reflecting on the 2020 offseason, Larkin said he thought he might have overdone it a bit while pushing himself so hard during the extra-long, pandemic-induced offseason. (The Red Wings were one of just seven teams that were in their offseason for 10 full months between 2019-20 and 2020-21.)...

The exact timeline, however, is still unfolding, with contact an obviously important benchmark.

“It’s something that is weekly, daily, it depends — I just have to still be cautious,” Larkin said. “I’m trying to push myself to be ready, and I think I will, but there’s still a little bit of an unknown with how everything’s going to respond. But so far, it’s looking good and I’m excited.”

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
