Dylan Larkin gives update on contract talks with Detroit Red Wings

Dylan Larkin recently told Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek that there has been a lot of negotiating with the Detroit Red Wings and that he believes they are closer than they ever have been about getting a deal done.

“We’re having conversations. A lot of negotiating, going back and forth. Ultimately, in my heart, it’s where I want to be,” Larkin told Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek just outside of Las Vegas. “I don’t really see myself playing for another team. It’s moving along. I can’t really tell you when or how [the deal gets resolved], but that’s where I want to be.”

“I do believe we’re closer than we’ve ever been,” Larkin enthused.

“I’m hoping,” he replied.
Larkin, who is now the captain of the Red Wings, positioned himself nicely for a contract extension by having a stellar 2021-22 season. During this past season, Larkin scored 31 goals and dished out 38 assists for 69 points in 71 games. His season was cut short when he had to have core muscle surgery.
Larking told Friedman and Marek that “his eight-week recovery went smoothly and that he is back training in full.”
