Dylan Larkin’s great season for the Detroit Red Wings continues to provide more highlight reel moments!
Such was the case Friday night against the Ottawa Senators; immediately after exiting the penalty box, Larkin took a pass from Frans Nielsen and corralled the puck between his legs before skating in alone on goaltender Craig Anderson and snapping a shot that beat him clean glove side to the tie game up 2-2!
Dylan Larkin is an absolute star. This goal is filthy.
He’s the most complete player the Red Wings have. And he’s 22. pic.twitter.com/ODaJs0nAzP

The goal was Larkin’s 14th of the season, good for first on the team in goals scored.
JUSTIN ABDELKADER PENS CHILDREN’S BOOK
Justin Abdelkader has turned his life story into a children’s book.
The Michigan native and Red Wings forward shared the news of his book titled “Shoot For The Goal: The Justin Abdelkader Story” from his Instagram account.
The story follows a young hockey player from Michigan who grows up dreaming of playing for the Red Wings and goes over the steps he took to make that dream a reality.
Here’s what Abdelkader had to say on Instagram about the book:
“Excited to finally share the project I have been working on, a children’s book about a boy from the west side of Michigan who had dreams of playing for the Detroit Red Wings. It has been so much fun reflecting on my childhood and all the obstacles that brought me to where I am today. This book is so special to me not only because it goes through my journey as a hockey player/student, but because I get to further my passion for children and reading through Abby’s All Stars by giving them one more book to read! ????Follow along for details on how to get your copy and signings I’ll be doing for “Shoot For The Goal” as well. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!”
