According to Red Wings’ (and United States) head coach Jeff Blashill, Larkin will be ok but will miss the remainder of the World Championship tournament.

From Detroit Free Press:

“Larkin will be out for tournament,” Blashill said via text. “Will be fine but out for tourney.”

It’s a bummer that Larkin will not be able to help out his teammates in the World Championship but it is certainly good to hear that he will be just fine.
