Dylan Larkin Undergoes Core Muscle Surgery

The Red Wings captain will miss the rest of the season

The Detroit Red Wings announced today on their website that captain Dylan Larkin underwent successful core muscle surgery. The expected recovery time is 8-10 weeks which, of course, puts him out for the remaining six games of the season.

Larkin was having a career year this season with a 31-38-69 stat line through 71 games. It's been clear for a while that he has been playing hurt, and to have a near point-per-game season while fighting through injury is impressive. Here's to hoping for a speedy recovery for D Boss and a return to even greater form next season.
