Filip Larsson set to learn in AHL next seasonJuly 10, 2019 | 12:39 AM
Filip Larsson is projected to start the 2019-20 campaign splitting the AHL duties with Calvin Pickard.
Larsson is getting ready for his first pro season after posting a 13-6-3 record, 1.95 GAA, and .932 save percentage in 22 games with the University of Denver as a freshman. He's a potential future number one for the Red Wings, but he's got work ahead of him in order to get there. Being able to play alongside a veteran like Pickard should be a good learning experience for him. "I know it's a good opportunity," Larsson said of playing in the AHL. "I'm not looking at NHL this upcoming season. I want to make the AHL team and get as many games as possible and develop.
