Larsson lifted because of dehydration

UPDATE: Larsson told me after the game that dehydration is only a problem for him after flying to or from Europe. He arrived in America Wednesday and is still feeling some effects. Larsson said that he felt fine after about five days when he came to rookie camp this past summer. For Larsson's sake, hopefully the NHL won't expand to Europe.


Goalie Daniel Larsson looked marvelous in his first North American action, starting the Red Wings' first prospects game tonight against the Rangers. He was confident, in position and didn't overextend.

But with 10:52 left in the second period, Larsson left the game in favor of Thomas McCollum. Although goalies often share time in tournaments like this, Larsson was slated to play the entire game. He was pulled because he was dehydrated. He was dehydrated as well at this summer's rookie camp at Joe Louis Arena. It's a correctable problem though.
