Season Outlook For Dylan Larkin

08/26/2019 at 7:32am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: Larkin stepped up with the best of his four NHL seasons in his first full season as the top-line center following Henrik Zetterberg’s retirement and nearly doubled his goal output from the previous two seasons combined.

In the first year of a five-year, $30.5 million contract, Larkin fulfilled his goal of being that “go-to guy that is a main cog,” playing in all situations and stepping up in overtime.

Larkin was better defensively and must continue improving his play without the puck.

He formed good chemistry late in the season with linemates Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi.

Larkin’s effort has never been questioned. His motor is always running, and he is highly motivated to keep improving and lead this team. He is certain to be the Red Wings’ next captain, whether it’s this season (which seems likely) or in 2020-21.

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.
