Red Wings Sign RFA Larkin To Five-Year Deal
The Detroit Red Wings signed their lone remaining restricted free agent, Dylan Larkin (pictured), to a five-year contract on Friday morning.
The 21 year old former Michigan Wolverine will get an average of $6.1 million for the next five years. That's according to The Athletic's Craig Custance.
Larkin led the Wings in points with 63 last season, his third season in the NHL. That 63 points includes 16 goals.
This signing puts the Detroit Red Wings at 22 skaters signed heading into the September opening of training camp. It also puts then over the $79.5 million salary cap for now, according to capfriendly.com.
But the Wings are expected to get back under the cap when they put injured forward Johan Franzen on long-term injured reserve before the 2018-19 season starts.
