And he spoke to The Athletic’s Craig Custance regarding several topics:

Dylan Larkin on Niklas Kronwall: “He’s one of the greatest people I’ve ever met in my life… would do anything for his teammates, do anything for staff members, do anything for a kid or someone who was a fan of hockey. We’re going to miss him. I’m going to miss him big time.”— Craig Custance (@CraigCustance) September 5, 2019

Dylan Larkin on the young core taking on more leadership: “It’s kind of our turn to take it. You get that window in your career – I’m 23. Andreas and Anthony (Mantha) are 24, 25. It’s our time. We can’t wait two years.”— Craig Custance (@CraigCustance) September 5, 2019

Dylan Larkin says he hasn’t talked to Yzerman about the captaincy. Says there’s a lot of deserving options: “I look up to those guys, we have guys in our room that battle every night. We have a great leadership core…I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s three A’s again.”— Craig Custance (@CraigCustance) September 5, 2019

Update: Larkin also spoke with USA Today’s Kevin Allen quite briefly regarding the CBA negotiations:

“Not a whole lot of concern here,” he said. “It’s under control. People are looking into it. It will be all right.”
