Last year, the Detroit Red Wings gave away a Dylan Larkin bobblehead. This year, they're paying homage to his alter ego.

Detroit will distribute dolls featuring "D-Boss," from Larkin's 2010 viral video, to the first 7,500 fans at Detroit's game against the Florida Panthers at Little Caesars Arena on Monday.

Larkin unveiled D-Boss, the snap-shooting hockey player alongside his sidekick EG Slayer played by his friend Evan Gizinski, to the world as a teenager in November 2010. The video, of D-Boss and Slayer shooting in "the dungeon," was unearthed during Larkin's rookie season with the Red Wings in 2016.

The doll features Larkin in his knee-holed jeans, flannel shirt and flipped-brim hat sitting on a couch while displaying his stick in classic D-Boss fashion.

Better get to the arena early Monday, Red Wings fans.
