The Ted Lindsay Foundation is thrilled to announce that Detroit Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin has joined the foundation as a spokesperson..
“It is my privilege to join Mr. Lindsay and his foundation to help fight autism,” said Larkin. “I look forward to working with them to help find a cause and to assist children with autism and their families.”
Dylan is currently in his fourth season with the Red Wings. The Waterford, Mich., native, made his National Hockey League debut in 2015 and quickly established himself as one of Detroit’s on-ice and off-ice leaders. Dylan led the Red Wings in goals (23) during his rookie campaign at just 19-years-old, and has firmly established himself as a cornerstone of Detroit’s future. He paced the Red Wings with a team-high 63 points last season. Dylan was recently named an alternate captain of the Red Wings for home games during the 2018-19 season and over his first three seasons in Detroit has immersed himself in a number of community initiatives around his hometown.
“Dylan Larkin is a tremendous addition to our foundation,” said Ted Lindsay. “At just 22-years-old, he has already shown the drive and determination to make a difference, both on and off the ice. I’m honored to have him on my team. Dylan will be an important part of the Ted Lindsay Foundation for years to come.”
