Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Pots two goals in preseason tilt
Larkin contributed two goals -- including a power-play tally -- in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.
Larkin is already gelling with Alex DeBrincat, who arrived in Detroit after an offseason sign-and-trade transaction. Last season, Larkin tied personal bests based on 32 goals and 47 assists, and he showed mark improvement on the man advantage with 31 points, smashing previous career highs in that key special teams spot. With the help of DeBrincat, this could be the year that Larkin becomes a truly elite fantasy option.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Leads team as expected
Larkin tied his career highs in goals (32) and assists (47) through 80 games this season.
While the captain narrowly missed out on a point-per-game average in his eighth season, Larkin had 23 points more than the next-highest skater donning the Winged Wheel, which was David Perron in his first year with the team. Fantasy managers know what they're getting with Larkin; he's a consistent offensive producer, and this year the young leader leveled up to the tune of 31 power-play points, but the Wings need to court an elite top-line winger in free agency or via a trade to help him reach new heights offensively. After all, there's still a wide gap in value between Larkin and the 10 forwards that notched at least 100 points this year.... See More ... See Less

Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Masterful on power play
Larkin collected a goal and an assist on the power play in Thursday's 7-6 shootout loss to the Sabres.
The Wings are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, but that won't stop the young captain from giving it his all. In Derek Lalonde's first year as head coach of the Wings, Larkin's tremendous work on the power play has been the most noticeable advancement to his offensive game. The Michigan native has dialed in 16 goals and 15 assists on the power play, which is 16 more than his previous career high set in 2018-19. Best of all, Larkin never seemed too distracted by contract talks leading up to his signing an eight-year, $69.7 million extension in March.... See More ... See Less

The 26-year-old center would then cap the hat trick with an empty netter in the final frame. Larkin has eight points (five goals, three assists) during his current four-game point streak. He extended his career high to 76 points (31 goals, 45 assists) through 75 games this season.... See More ... See Less

Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Scores in loss to Florida
Larkin collected a goal in a 5-2 loss to Florida on Monday.

Larkin is on pace to finish with 78 points this season, and that would surpass his career high of 73, which he set in 2018-19. His marker Monday came in the third period to narrow Florida's lead to 3-2, but the Panthers responded with two unanswered goals.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Earns power-play assist
Larkin registered a power-play assist in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.
Larkin has earned two goals and two assists through five games in March, but fantasy managers generally expect more from a player of his caliber, as Feb. 16 was the last time Detroit's captain recorded multiple points in a given contest. Larkin has four game-winning goals and 24 power-play points to keep him in the elite class of NHL centers, though that may be of little consolation to a fierce competitor whose team is on the brink of being eliminated from playoff contention....

Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Three points against Bruins
Larkin scored a goal and two assists, with one of each coming on the power play, in Sunday's 5-3 win over Boston.
The outburst snapped a string of 11 straight games without multiple points for Larkin, but that lull has been the exception and not the rule for the 26-year-old this season. He's up to 25 goals and 64 points through 65 games, and Larkin continues to do major damage with the man advantage -- his 14 goals and 26 points on the power play have shattered his previous career highs of seven and 15, set back in 2018-19....

Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Strikes again on man advantage
Larkin registered a power-play goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
This was Larkin's first goal in the last seven games, but with 12 goals and 10 assists on the power play, the captain is blowing past his previous career highs in that key special teams spot. Still, Detroit's playoff hopes are dwindling, and Larkin -- who signed an eight-year, $69.9 million contract extension this past Monday -- has even more pressure to carry the team following the loss of Tyler Bertuzzi, a tenacious winger that ended up getting dealt to the Bruins after spending parts of seven campaigns in Motown....

Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Locked up for eight seasons
Larkin signed an eight-year, $69.6 million contract extension with Detroit on Wednesday, per Pierre LeBrun of TSN.
Larkin's working through the final season of his five-year, $30.5 million contract. His new deal will begin with the 2023-24 campaign. The 26-year-old has 22 goals and 57 points in 59 contests this season. He was similarly effective in 2021-22 with 31 goals and 69 points in 71 games, which likely helped contribute to him securing this big payday.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Earns helper in victory
Larkin posted an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.
Two days after being ejected for a high cross-check on T.J. Oshie in a win over the Capitals, Larkin was mostly quiet in this home victory, as he managed only one shot between 20:53 of ice time, including 5:02 on the power play. Still, his apple against the Blueshirts has the captain at 57 points (22 goals, 35 assists) through 56 games. Larkin is averaging 0.74 points per game over his eight-year career, but he's yet to finish a campaign with more points than games played; perhaps this will be the one, as he's in a contract year and hoping to garner a big extension....
