Dylan Larkin’s Top 5 highlights from 2021-22 [Video]

The Detroit Red Wings will be without the services of their captain Dylan Larkin for the remaining six regular-season games on their schedule after he underwent successful core muscle surgery today in Lansing. His expected recovery time is between 8-and-10 weeks, meaning that he should be back in time for training camp in the fall.

The second-year Red Wings captain came very close to matching his personal bests in both goals and points this season, and despite missing out on the Stanley Cup Playoffs once again, it was a very productive and bounce-back year for Larkin, especially after last season's offensive struggles.
