’s Wakiji speaks with Dylan Larkin at the Larkin Hockey School

This morning,’s Dana Wakiji joins the fray of media members who’ve spoken with Dylan Larkin at his hockey school in Waterford, MI.

Wakiji discusses the Larkin Hockey School, Evgeny Svechnikov’s presence at the school, and Larkin’s take on the Wings’ draft class:

“I do love the kids,” Larkin said after Monday’s morning session. “It’s fun for us. They’re mouthy, sometimes they don’t pay attention and I catch myself maybe getting a little upset and then I just laugh. How could you not? You just take a step back. The kids, they have a mind of their own, you just let them go and be themselves and they all have personalities, they all love hockey – maybe not love listening or skating drills but they definitely love the scrimmaging and being around and lunchtime and being with their buddies.”

There are plenty of other things the Larkins could be doing this summer — training for their own upcoming hockey seasons, seeing the latest movies or just relaxing in the sunshine — but they make sure they keep their priorities in order.
