Dylan has set various rookie records and won numerous honors since turning professional. He was also chosen to the All-Freshman Team, the All-Big Ten First Team, and the Second Team All-American.

Looking back to his initial career, Dylan was a member of the Detroit Belle Tire minor ice hockey team. At a young age, he was a member of the team that competed in the 2009 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament.

The American player began his sophomore season at the University of Michigan after graduating from high school. During the 2014-15 season, he was a member of the Michigan Wolverines. Dylan was selected National Rookie of the Month by the Hockey Commissioners' Association in January. Not to mention, Larkin was the top freshman in college hockey in his freshman year.

In a 10-6 win over Ohio State, Dylan set a new career-high with five points. He also became the first Michigan freshman since October 1997 to score five points in a game. Similarly, the emerging player was selected the Big Ten First Star of the Week that season after scoring a goal and assisting on 12 shots on goal.

The hockey player signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Detroit Red Wings on May 21, 2015, following a strong college career with the Michigan Wolverines. Following an amateur trial, he was assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins, the Red Wings' American Hockey League club. Hence we believe, the trade must have helped in the growth of  Dylan Larkin's net worth. 

Larkin made more history in October when he was named to the final roster for the 2015-16 season, becoming the first 19-year-old to make his NHL debut since Mike Sillinger in 1990-91.

In 2018, the hockey star renewed the contract of five years worth $30.5 million. And, based on his career, we expect Dylan Larkin's net worth and earnings to continue to rise.

For the records, Dylan started his professional hockey career with the 2015 - 2016 season earning total cash of $925K. However, today after having been played for seven seasons his overall fortune is estimated to be $28 million.

We anticipate him playing for many more seasons and winning more titles, simultaneously earning more fortune.
