(WXYZ) — The Detroit Red Wings brought back former captains to celebrate current captain Dylan Larkin in a pregame ceremony Thursday night.

Former captains Red Berenson, Paul Woods, Nick Libett, Dennis Hextall, Alex Delvecchio, and Steve Yzerman joined Mickey Redmond, who subsequently introduced Detroit's last two captains, Nicklas Lidstrom and Henrik Zetterberg, in a surprise appearance.

Larkin was named captain prior to the 2020-21 season, but Thursday's home opener at Little Caesars Arena marked the first opportunity for the team to hold a proper celebration with a full-capacity crowd.
