Red Wings name Larkin captain
DETROIT — Dylan Larkin became the Red Wings’ 37th captain in franchise history on Wednesday.
Larkin, 24, is the first metro Detroit native to be named Red Wings’ captain. He served as an alternate captain since the 2018-19 season.
The team announced the decision late Wednesday morning.
The captaincy was vacant after Henrik Zetterberg, the last Red Wings’ captain, retired after the 2017-18 season because of injury.
Larkin is the second American named captain after Reed Larson (Minneapolis, Minn.).
Larkin has appeared in 389 games since 2015-16 with 107 goals and 266 points.
