Fantastic? No. He looked to be on his way as a nice (but not spectacular) player last season, but he's been pretty bad this season.

Our coach recognizes that Larsen has serious physical limitations against bigger, stronger NHL opposition on a team with a couple of other undersized starting d-men. So the coach goes with bigger bodies when he can.

With the roster composition, Larsen quickly being passed on the depth chart by Dillon, and Larsen's own poor play and physical limitations, this is probably going down as a lost season for him. Next season may be even tougher because he should compete for plying time with Oleksiak and Nemeth, two guys with a lot more potential.
