Red Wings' Dylan Larkin Back At Practice

Detroit Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin was a participant at the club's practice this morning (Dec. 14). This is certainly a very promising development, as the star center was recently injured in the Original Six's matchup against the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 9. 
Larkin was hit in the back of the head and neck by Senators winger Mathieu Joseph and was knocked out. He was able to get off the ice without a stretcher, but there was plenty of concern for his health following the play. Head coach Derek Lalonde later told reporters that Larkin would miss a week of action and was put on IR. Now, he is back at practice, and that is just great to see. 

While this return to practice does not mean that Larkin will return to game action immediately, it does show that he feels good enough to resume skating. Here's to hoping that he suffers no setbacks from here and is cleared to return soon.
