Jeff Blashill On Dylan Larkin

02/10/2019 at 8:48am EST

“It’s been real impressive and I think on a consistent basis, he’s been a real good player,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “He gets lots of ice time with it, too, so there’s lots of responsibility on him, and he understands that and bears that burden.

“I don’t think there’s any question that Dylan has taken huge steps towards being that good, all-around centerman that you have to be to be a successful hockey team. He’s a huge building block for this team because of it. If all you do is score points, you’re not a building block. If you score points and play defense, now you’re a building block.”

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press has more on Larkin.

Don't forget, 3:00pm ET game today in Chicago.

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.
