Dylan Larkin absolutely caught fire during NHL All-Star Weekend with 5 goals

Detroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin treated the NHL All-Star Games like any other NHL contests on Saturday.

Catching serious fire for the Atlantic team, Larkin scored an absurd five goals during the day as his conference group won the all-star weekend.

The Atlantic team topped both the Metropolitan and Central conference teams during the NHL’s gathering of its best players, and Larkin had the best day of anyone playing. He even scored a hat trick during the weekend’s final game.

The Red Wings captain has no trouble putting up highlights, and his NHL All-Star weekend will undoubtedly help bolster his case as he tries to secure a lucrative new deal during the offseason when free agency hits.

Wow, Larkin really wasn’t messing around this weekend.

As he proved he’s easily one of the NHL’s most dangerous offensive players, Larkin put on a show for the league’s other teams if the Red Wings choose to let him walk in the offseason.

In short, somebody is going to pay Larkin handsomely this summer.
