In Red Wings Land
It’s good news for Dylan Larkin because his injury doesn’t seem super serious, but he’s out for the rest of the World Championships.
Update on Red Wings' Dylan Larkin, who was hit in groin area by puck Tuesday: Jeff Blashill tells Detroit Free Press Larkin "is out for tournament. Will be fine but is out for tourney." U.S. faces Russia in #IIHFWorlds QF today.— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) May 23, 2019
On the flip side, it’s bad news for Anthony Mantha because he’s dominating over in Slovakia at the World Championships, but can’t play next game because he’s suspended. Although, in my opinion, he definitely deserved to get a game. It was a bad hit.
Around the League
Craig Button once again mocks center Dylan Cozens to the Red Wings at #6. His top five consists of Jack Hughes, Kaapo Kakko, Bowen Byram, Kirby Dach and Cole Caufield. If that’s how things play out before the Wings pick, I’d prefer they take Alex Turcotte over Cozens.
