Update: The Free Press’s Helene St. James posted a story about the event:

Former Detroit Red Wings captains Steve Yzerman, Nicklas Lidstrom and Henrik Zetterberg were on the ice Thursday for a delayed celebration honoring Dylan Larkin becoming the 37th captain in franchise history.

Yzerman bestowed the “C” on Larkin before the start of the 2021 season, but the pandemic made it impossible to have much of a ceremony. Yzerman and Larkin met in Yzerman’s office, and shook hands. 

Thursday was more fitting for such an honor. Before a lively crowd at Little Caesars Arena, a red carpet was rolled out to welcome a who’s who of former Wings captains: Red Berenson, Nick Libbett, Paul Woods, Dennis Hextall and Mickey Redmond joined Yzerman, Lidstrom and Zetterberg.
