Red Wings C Dylan Larkin says one game suspension for punching TBL Mathieu Joseph "was warranted." Said he shouldn't have reacted the way he did. But he had "so much anger" from what he went through after neck injury in April, when there was no disciplinary action against Benn.— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) October 18, 2021
Larkin said Joseph texted and apologized for hit. Larkin did likewise for punch.— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) October 18, 2021
Jeff Blashill says Marc Staal is getting looked at. Didn't practice today. Status uncertain.— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) October 18, 2021
Jeff Blashill on Joe Veleno: "Its important for guys to be in spots where they have a chance to thrive. We want him to be in important roles. There is going to be a time where Joe plays for us this year, bet on that." #LGRW@DetroitRedWings— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) October 18, 2021
