Larkin sets new ‘fastest skater’ record


LOS ANGELES: Detroit Red Wings rookie center Dylan Larkin captured the Fastest Skater title, breaking the 20-year old mark set by Mike Gartner during the NHL all-star skills competition on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). The 19-year-old American Larkin zipped around the Bridgestone Arena ice surface in 13.172 seconds, just 0.02 seconds ahead of Gartner’s former record of 13.386. Larkin would have had an even faster time if he hadn’t stumbled around the last turn.
