DETROIT — Dylan Larkin befriended a 14-year-old cancer survivor named Michael Banaszewski this summer at Detroit's Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Michael cheered on Larkin at the celebrity pro-am event, screaming "D-Boss! D-Boss!"
Jimmy Howard heard the teenager, and welcomed him under the ropes for the afternoon. Larkin promised to stay in touch, and this week invited Michael and his family to Red Wings practice for a first-class experience. Watch more in this report:
