Many fans of the Detroit Red Wings wholeheartedly hope and believe that Dylan Larkin, who turns the highly-anticipated 21 years of age on Sunday, could be the next great player to don the winged wheel for years to come.

The native of Waterford, MI set a high standard for himself as a rookie, leading the Wings with 23 goals and tying for third with 45 points in the 2015-16 season. He ended up finishing 5th in the voting for the Calder Memorial Trophy (league’s top rookie).
