One day before the 2020-21 season kicked off, Red Wings center Dylan Larkin was named team captain, becoming the first Michigander and native metro Detroiter to wear the ‘C’ for the club. A native of Waterford, Mich., Larkin had served as an alternate captain for the Red Wings since 2018-19. He became the franchise’s first captain since Henrik Zetterberg, who retired on Sept. 14, 2018.

October 24 – Lucas Raymond’s first career hat trick leads Detroit past Chicago

Detroit recorded its first road win of the 2021-22 season and Raymond celebrated his first career hat trick as the Red Wings defeated the Chicago Blackhawks, 6-3, at the United Center.

I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.
