Forward Dylan Larkin has been named the 37th captain of the Detroit Red Wings, the team announced Wednesday. Larkin, a native of the Detroit area and former University of Michigan star, has served as a backup captain in each of the past two seasons. The 24-year-old will be the first Red Wings captain since Henrik Zetterberg retired on September 14, 2018. Larkin posted team-leading totals in assists (34) and points (53) in 71 games last season. His 19 goals were behind only Tyler Bertuzzi at the club. “Dylan is an extremely competitive and motivated player who sets the standard for dedication and conduct for the Red Wings,” said Red Wings Executive Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman. “This is the right time to appoint our new captain and we are confident that Dylan is ready to take on the responsibility. He will be an outstanding leader for us, both on and off the ice.” Larkin has accumulated 266 points (107 goals, 159 assists) since being selected by Red Wings with the 15th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.
