On Monday, DetroitRedWings.com’s Arthur J. Regner sat engaged in a sit-down interview with Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin at his hockey school in Waterford, MI, and WXYZ’s Brad Galli also spoke at length with Larkin, discussing several topics over the course of a 9-minute interview:
During Larkin’s interview with Galli, #71 discussed the injury he suffered at the World Championship:
Larkin is cleared to play, and not a moment too soon. He battled through injuries during the Red Wings season, including a neck issue.
He found success at the World Championships before taking a puck in the groin. He didn’t play again for Team USA.
“It was the most pain I’ve ever in my life. I don’t really want to go back to it, to be honest with you,” he said. “That was a tough one, especially a tough way to end the season.”
Larkin considered himself lucky after the incident. He’s cleared for contact, and laughed when asked if he’s cleared for training camp. To be certain, he’s absolutely good to go then, now, and pointed out he’s already working like crazy chasing after the kids at his school.
“Body’s good. I’m back working out, back skating obviously, and it’s a long summer so I’m ready to better myself and be ready for next season.”
