Larkin is in the midst of a breakout season
Red Wings centre Larkin picked up right where he left off prior to the NHL’s brief holiday break, roofing a puck home past Penguins goaltender Matt Murray in the opening period to extend his point streak to 12 games.
Larkin’s goal was his 16th of the season, and helped the 22-year-old match his goal-scoring output from the entire 2017-18 campaign. The fact he did so in less than half the amount of games speaks volumes.
He’s going to be the next captain of the Detroit Red Wings.
