Larkin, Howard literally ‘tee off,’ talk hockey at the Rocket Mortgage Classic Pro-Am

On Tuesday night, Dylan Larkin and Jimmy Howard took part in the Pro-Am which kicked off the Rocket Mortgage golf Classic at the Detroit Country Club.

Here’s what Howard had to say about the Wings’ drafting and front office changes while speaking with MLive’s Jared Purcell:

Larkin was at the Detroit Country Club on Tuesday afternoon for the AREA 313 Celebrity Challenge with teammates Jimmy Howard and Justin Abdelkader. Howard was at his lake house in Maine during the draft and said he hasn’t evaluated any of the picks the Red Wings have made yet. Still, he has confidence in the organization’s abilities despite the shock that the Seider pick created.

“Those guys, they do their homework so well,” Howard said. “They know every player in and out. Maybe for them, the family and the kid, it was of a surprise. But going into it, they obviously had him penciled pretty high and I welcome him to the organization. It’s going to be great to see.”

Howard is also excited that Steve Yzerman has returned to the organization.

“I was able to play a couple of games with Stevie my rookie year,” Howard said. “Now, to have him back here and being the boss, it’s neat and it’s great for the city. I think it’s great for our organization as a whole.”

Purcell continues, and he posted clips of various celebrity Pro-Am participants taking swings. FORE your consideration:
