On Dylan Larkin: Think Darren Helm With Better Scoring Ability

Here's a video of Dylan Larkin being drafted 15th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft Friday.

TSN's Craig Button described Larkin:

"Detroit Red Wings fans, think Darren Helm, but better scoring ability," Button said as Larkin made his way up to the stage. "He's got that type of disruptive speed. He comes at you defensively. He comes at you offensively."
Button recalled Larkin playing through a difficult injury during the U-18 tournament.

"He's got gots. And he's got lots of skill and lots of speed. He'll fit in perfectly with the Red Wings," Button said.

Pierre McGuire (take it with a grain of salt) said he thinks that one day Larkin will be a "captain in the National Hockey League."

He was described as a shutdown center who could still score goals.
