Dylan Larkin went back to school on Saturday.

The Detroit Red Wings forward sat in the University of Michigan student section "Children of Yost" to support the Wolverines during Game 2 of their Big Ten tournament series against rival Michigan State.

Larkin, who had 15 goals and 47 points in 37 games in 2014-15, his only season with the Wolverines, was at Yost Arena for the second game of the best-of-three series in Ann Arbor. When the student section discovered that, they chanted for Detroit's leading scorer to join them.

Larkin abided.

Michigan coach Mel Pearson told the school's athletics site he appreciated having Larkin in the house. He also put out a plea for his services.

"Dylan's got three years of eligibility left," Pearson told "We're going to see to see if he can come back."

Larkin also brought some good luck against the Spartans. Michigan advanced to the Big Ten semifinals with a 3-0 win and a sweep.
