Detroit Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin is facing a possible suspension for his actions on Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
In fact, TSN’s director of scouting Craig Button believes Larkin should be suspended by the NHL.
“He needs a two-game suspension,” Button said.
Nation, do you think Larkin should be suspended for his actions?
On Thursday night, Dylan Larkin made his debut as captain of the Detroit Red Wings but he was unable to complete the game as he was ejected for throwing a haymaker after he was hit into the boards headfirst.
The play came with the Red Wings leading the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 late in the second period.
Take a look as Larkin, who scored the first goal of the evening, is slammed headfirst into the boards by Mathieu Joseph of the lightning. As you can see, despite the scary-looking hit, Larkin popped right up and threw a haymaker that connected with the face/throat area of Joseph.
