Larkin held scoreless as Atlantic falls 8–5 to Central at 2022 NHL All-Star Game

Detroit Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin took part in his second NHL All-Star Game on Saturday as a member of Team Atlantic, which fell 8–5 to Team Central in the three-on-three tournament semifinal.

Larkin, 25, and Montreal Canadiens forward Nick Suzuki were the only Atlantic Division skaters held without a point in the 20-minute game.

Jonathan Huberdeau, Auston Matthews, Patrice Bergeron, Rasmus Dahlin, and Steven Stamkos all scored for Team Atlantic. Alex DeBrincat and Jordan Kyrou each scored twice for Team Central, which also received goals from Nazem Kadri, Kyle Connor, Roman Josi, and Joe Pavelski.

Team Central advanced to play against Team Metropolitan in the tournament final. Philadelphia Flyers captain and eventual 2022 All-Star Game MVP Claude Giroux led the way in that game with two goals to help the Metro win the tournament.

Even without scoring in the actual game, Larkin managed to capture fans’ attention during warm-ups by donning a pair of cool shades — featuring a built-in camera.

Larkin previously represented the Atlantic Division at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game, recording three assists in a 4–3 win over the Metropolitan Division before being held off the board in a 1–0 loss to the John Scott-led Pacific in the tournament final.
