Getting a hat-trick from Detroit Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin, the Atlantic Division downed the Central Division 7-5 win the NHL All-Star Game final at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Fla. on Saturday.

It’s the first time in the six-year history of the 3-on-3 divisional tournament format that the Atlantic Division won the All-Star Game. Dylan Larkin scored two goals as the Atlantic downed the Metropolitan Division 10-6 in the semifinals.

“It was so much fun,” Larkin told Associated Press. “I’m proud of how we won it. What a great group of guys … it was just a great weekend.”

Larkin was the lone Red Wings representative in the game, just as he was a season ago. He’s the first Red Wings player to score in an All-Star Game since Tyler Bertuzzi in 2020.

By virtue of their victory, the players, along with coach Jim Montgomery of the Boston Bruins, will split the grand prize of $1 million.

First Red Wings All-Star Game Hat-Trick In 73 Years

Larkin’s goals were his first in his third All-Star Game appearance. He also skated in the 2016 game during his NHL rookie season.

He’s the first Detroit player to record a hat-trick in the NHL All-Star Game since Ted Lindsay in 1950. Playing for the reigning Stanley Cup champion Red Wings against the NHL All-Stars in the fourth NHL All-Star Game, Lindsay scored three times as Detroit won 7-1.
