Svechnikov has been assigned to Grand Rapids, and the NHL faces some severe financial deficits. While things aren’t exactly “rosy” from a league standpoint, Detroit fans should be all smiles today. Dylan Larkin has been announced as team captain.

Dylan Larkin becomes the first metro Detroit native to wear the “C” for the Red Wings. While we were all expecting it, this is well earned (and well deserved). Larkin stood in front of cameras without fail after every game in an immensely difficult season last year. He’s committed to making the team better, and “stirs the drink” with his presence and his energy.

My wife and I both smiled when the news was announced. This is the face of the rebuild. Let me know your thoughts.
