Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin offered an update regarding what turns out to be a minor foot injury after practice today, as noted by the Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan..
Larkin skated briefly Thursday during one of the Red Wings’ split practices, but exactly when he’ll make his first appearance in a preseason game is unclear.
“I’m not sure,” said Larkin, when asked if he’ll play in one of the two games this weekend. “I feel good on the ice, just taking it easy, I guess, resting up and I hope to play soon. But I’m not sure (when he’ll play).”
Larkin called it a “nagging injury, I don’t even call it an injury,” bothering his foot and heel.
“It’s just a thing going on with my foot and heel, (we’re) just trying to figure it out. It’s something that came up during training (over the summer), running, and trying to figure it out, to settle it own .I skated today and and it felt good. We’ll see what tomorrow feels like.”
Kulfan continues, and the Wings just posted a video of Larkin’s remarks:
