Well, the winds of change continue to blow through Oil Country. The team announced it signed Dylan Larkin's undrafted older brother out of Division III NCAA UMass - Boston.

The good news? Larkin lights up Division III. He's 6'3, 192 lbs and has 24-22-46 in 27 games of UMass-Boston this season. The bad news is that it's Division III...it's worlds away from the NHL. Not a single player on Larkin's team has been drafted by an NHL squad.

I think this falls in to a similar category as all the minor league signings from last summer. A plug who probably should be on an AHL-only contract at best, who does little more than take up a contract spot. But good news! He might be a little bit quick if he's anything like his brother! Maybe...no one can really confirm this, because people don't usually spend a lot of time watching players this far out of the orbit.



"This team needs an enema!"
