This summer, Detroit GM Ken Holland announced that prized prospect Dylan Larkin would be making the move to center, after finishing top-five in Calder voting last year as a winger.
Now, it looks like the Wings are going all in with the move.
That ties directly into the Larkin move — last year, the two were mates on a line centered by Zetterberg, who “took a lot of the responsibility off Dylan,” according to Holland.
So, what does it mean for Larkin?
It looks like a trio Detroit could go to early and often this season, which would allow the Zetterberg-Nielsen and Vanek-Helm duos to stick together, and try and establish some chemistry.
