The Detroit Red Wings want you to unleash your inner D-Boss.

The team invited fans to participate in the D-Boss Challenge while quarantining by showing off their best hockey moves at home in a nod to forward Dylan Larkin's alter-ego.

Larkin became an internet superstar after a video of his "D-Boss" character shooting in his "dungeon" reached public conscience in 2016. Detroit distributed a D-Boss bobblehead in 2017, and Larkin himself leaned in by labeling his sticks with the nickname.

The D-Boss Challenge is about using hockey equipment on hand to produce the best move. Tag your moves across social media with #DBossChallenge or #TogetherDetroit to get in on the fun.
