Red Wings Daily: Captain Larkin Joins Multiple 30-Goal Club



Dylan Larkin, Detroit Red Wings
Captain Dylan Larkin is the fifth Detroit Red Wings player since 2000 to post multiple 30-goal seasons.

Historically, posting multiple 30-goal seasons in a Detroit Red Wings uniform isn’t necesarily rare. It’s been done by 20 different players, after all. That list includes a current NHL coach (Gerard Gallant), GM (Steve Yzerman) and team president (Brendan Shanahan).

Recent history, though, shows it to be a much rarer feat. When captain Dylan Larkin netted his 30th of the season in Tuesday’s 5-3 win over the Boston Bruins, it completed the second 30-goal season of his career. Larkin became just the fifth Red Wings player to post multiple 30-goal campaigns since 2000.

Joining Larkin in that group are Shanahan, Sergei Fedorov, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk.

Hot Wings

Forward Michael Rasmussen shows four goals in his past five games.

Cold Wings

Winger Adam Erne has one goal in his last 29 games since Jan. 26.

Shootout At The Van Andel Arena

Victor Brattstrom was the hero, stopping 11 of 12 shots in the shootout as the Grand Rapids Griffins edge the Cleveland Monsters 2-1 in an AHL game on Wednesday. Brattstrom also made 35 saves during regulation time and overtime.

Josh Dickinson netted the shootout winner for GR. Jonatan Berggren scored to make it 1-1 and second the game to extra time. Riley Barber drew an assist on Berggren’s goal, extending his points streak to eight games (5-4-9).

Drew Worrad and Samuel Dove-McFalls each made their pro debuts.
