A new mark for the NHL's fastest skater was set by the Detroit rookie at the All-Star Skills Competition in Nashville.Dylan Larkin made a little history Saturday in the Music City. Larkin, the Detroit Red Wings left winger and most recent cover boy of The Hockey News, broke a 20-year-old mark for his skating prowess at the NHL All-Star Skills Competition. Larkin completed a lap in 13.172 seconds, breaking then-Toronto Maple Leafs right winger Mike Gartner’s record of 13.386 seconds back in 1996. Gartner’s record was established six months before Larkin, 19, was even born. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Larkin became a trending topic on Twitter in Canada. His efforts also earned him some respect from another speedster, former NHLer Cliff Ronning.
