Red Wings Top 25 Under 25: Filip Larsson first goalie on the list at 21
  • Checking in at #21 in the Top 25 Under 25 is Filip Larsson, the first goalie to appear on this list so far.
  • Goaltender is a position of concern in the Red Wings current system, with no realistic options to take the reigns from the Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier tandem for at least a few seasons.
  • Larsson made the jump to the USHL, adjusting his game for the North American ice surface during the 2017-18 season.
  • Obviously these types of awards give Red Wings fans a reason to be excited of what Larsson could become.
  • Larsson’s play earned him a spot on the Swedish WJC team last season as the backup to Filip Gustavsson, a team that took home the silver medal.
  • Larsson is preparing for the 2018-19 season, his first in the NCAA with the University of Denver.
  • So the soonest we would likely see him in a Red Wings uniform is the 2022-23 season at age 24, lining up well with when the Red Wings are hopefully making their push for a return to contender status.
