Red Wings-Canucks post-morning skate Tweets: Larkin still being evaluated; Fabbri, Rowney draw in

The Detroit Red Wings held a brief morning skate ahead of tonight’s game against the Vancouver Canucks (7 PM EDT start on BSD/Sportsnet West/97.1 FM); Vancouver skipped their morning skate for a media availability instead as they’re coming off a 5-4 shootout win over Philadelphia last night (and are playing their 3rd game in 4 nights).

After the morning skate, the Red Wings held their media availabilities, and the beat writers let us know what was said:

Coach Blashill says in regards to the Larkin/Joseph situation— he doesn’t think a punch with a glove on is more dangerous than a high check into the boards #LGRW @DetroitRedWings— Carley Johnston (@carleykjohnston) October 16, 2021

Larkin is still in the evaluation period for his “ailment” from the Joseph hit #LGRW @DetroitRedWings— Carley Johnston (@carleykjohnston) October 16, 2021

Jeff Blashill said Dylan Larkin is still being evaluated. No update on his injury #LGRW @DetroitRedWings— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) October 16, 2021

Blashill said Larkin still going through evaluation process regarding injury, so no update today. #RedWings— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) October 16, 2021

Blashill says Larkin still in evaluation period in terms of his health. Will obviously serve his one game suspension tonight. #RedWings— Ted Kulfan (@tkulfan) October 16, 2021

Jeff Blashill said Robby Fabbri will fill Larkins role at Center and Carter Rowney will also slide into the lineup. #LGRW @DetroitRedWings— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) October 16, 2021
