Larsen came to Rögle BK's junior team at age 15. On 9 October 2005, Larsen made his senior hockey debut for Rögle in a 3–0 win over Nybro Vikings. For the 2006–07 season Larsen was acquired by Frölunda HC. On 24 February 2007, Larsen made his Elitserien debut for Frölunda in an 8–2 win against HV71. On 20 April 2009, following his season at Frölunda, Larsen was recalled to the NHL club that drafted him, the Dallas Stars, who then signed him to a three-year entry-level contract.
On 28 May 2014, HC Yugra of the KHL signed Larsen to a one-year contract. Larsen enjoyed a successful debut season in the KHL in 2014–15, contributing with 6 goals and 25 points in 56 games as Yugra missed the post-season.
On 25 May 2015, Larsen signed a one-year contract to remain in the KHL, moving to Finnish participant Jokerit. While in the playoffs with Jokert having recorded 36 points in 52 regular season games, on 24 February 2016, Larsen's NHL rights were traded by the Edmonton Oilers to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a conditional 5th round pick in the 2017 draft.
On July 1, 2016, Larsen signed a one-year, one-way deal by the Vancouver Canucks. Limited to 26 games with the Canucks due to injury and form, Larsen struggled to make an impact in his return to the NHL in 2016–17, registering 1 goal and 6 points.
As an impending free agent from the Canucks, Larsen opted to return to the KHL after his rights were traded by Jokerit, agreeing to a two-year contract with Russian club, Salavat Yulaev Ufa on April 20, 2017.
At international level, Larsen has represented Denmark at the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, and at the 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014 IIHF World Championships with the Denmark men's national ice hockey team.
