  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Wins it in overtime Saturday

    Seider scored the game-winning goal, fired three shots on net and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

    Seider unleashed a blast to beat Ilya Sorokin at 3:33 of the extra session. It was Seider's second overtime tally of the season and his third overall. The German defenseman is up to 17 points, 42 shots, 43 blocked shots, 35 hits and a plus-3 rating in 25 contests.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Two apples in thriller

    Seider posted two assists in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Kraken.

    The highly touted rookie was the secondary distributor on back-to-back goals for a Red Wings team that has rattled off four straight wins. Seider dealt with a knee injury in mid-November, but he hasn't missed any action. The 20-year-old defenseman continues to shine with two goals and 14 assists through 24 games.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Ready to go

    Seider (knee) is "good to go" for Saturday's road clash with the Coyotes, Ansar Khan of reports.

    The prized rookie defenseman reportedly looked good at Friday's practice, at least in the eyes of head coach Jeff Blashill. Detroit has lost three straight games and the club is looking for answers on both ends of the ice. Seider, who apparently dodged a serious knee injury after getting hit with the puck in Thursday's agame against Vegas, is a big part of the offensive scheme based on his output of two goals and 11 assists through 19 games.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Injured in Thursday's loss

    Seider (knee) was injured on a blocked shot in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. Head coach Jeff Blashill had no update on the defenseman's status after the game.

    Seider left the game late in the third period, so an update isn't likely to surface until Friday at the earliest. Any missed time would for the blueliner would be a huge blow to the Red Wings -- he's logged 13 points in 19 contests while emerging as a top-pairing option. He's likely day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game versus the Coyotes.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Plucks apple on power play

    Seider notched a power-play assist, two shots on goal and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.

    Seider has been steady in November with two goals and three helpers in nine games. The German blueliner is up to 13 points, 32 shots on net, 23 hits and 22 blocked shots through his first 18 NHL contests. He's produced six power-play assists while taking over the quarterback role on the first unit.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Continues to deliver

    Seider provided a primary assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens.

    Seider leads all rookie defensemen in points with his total comprised of two goals and 10 helpers through 16 games. He and Lucas Raymond -- a forward who was Detroit's fourth overall pick from 2020 -- have been all the rage in Motown under the direction of 25-year-old captain Dylan Larkin.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Secures win over Edmonton

    Seider scored an empty-net goal on three shots and added two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Seider hit the bullseye from point-blank range to round out the scoring with six seconds left in the third period. It was the second goal of the year for the 20-year-old rookie, who has produced 11 points and 10 PIM through his first 14 NHL games.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Nets first NHL goal

    Seider scored his first NHL goal in overtime to seal at 4-3 win over Buffalo on Saturday.

    Seider took a pass from Tyler Bertuzzi and fired a shot from the left circle to complete the comeback for the Red Wings, who had trailed 3-1 in the third period. He has vaulted into early Calder contention with 10 points in his first 12 NHL games. Seider plays with a maturity and poise that belies his age -- he is strong on the puck in his own zone and so far, he has never been held off the scoresheet for more than two consecutive games.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Pockets assist

    Seider produced an assist, four hits, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers.

    Seider set up Pius Suter's game-tying goal at 17:19 of the third period. The 20-year-old Seider is already turning heads with seven helpers through eight contests. He's earned a spot on the top defense pairing while adding 10 shots on goal, nine hits, nine blocked shots, eight PIM and a minus-1 rating. Not much seems to be stopping the German rookie right now -- give him a look for a scoring boost from the blue line in fantasy.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Helpers in consecutive outings

    Seider recorded a power-play assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    The sixth overall pick from 2019 has not looked out of place in a top-pairing role for the Red Wings. Seider has produced five assists (three on the power play), seven shots on net, seven blocked shots and a minus-2 rating across six contests. The German blueliner could still have some bumps in the road ahead, but he's handling the NHL just fine for a 20-year-old rookie.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Syncs up with Larkin

    Seider contributed a power-play assist in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Canadiens.

    The Red Wings were thumped by a Habs team that lost each of its first five contests, but even so, the rookie Seider managed to etch the box score with his fourth apple of the young season. There was nothing fancy about Seider's point pass to Dylan Larkin for Detroit's lone goal, but we're convinced that the 20-year-old will enjoy an extremely bright future if he sticks to the fundamentals and takes cues from captain Larkin.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Supplies first power-play assist

    Seider delivered a power-play assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Canucks.

    Seider set the table for a Filip Zadina one-timer which ended up as the game-winning goal. Granted, this season is brand new, but it's difficult to argue with Seider's production based on his registering three assists through the first two contests. Mo looks quite comfortable on the second defensive pair and No. 2 power-play unit, but it'll be interesting to see how consistent he can be over the course of a full NHL season.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Two assists in debut

    Seider produced a pair of assists, three hits and two PIM in Thursday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Lightning.

    The sixth overall pick from 2019 looked solid in his NHL debut, helping out on half of Tyler Bertuzzi's four goals in the contest. Seider has made a good first impression for the rebuilding Red Wings, with the hopes that he'll be a foundational piece in the future. For now, he's likely to grow into a top-four role, and there will probably be some bumps in the road throughout the year as there are with many rookies.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Set for NHL debut

    Seider will make his NHL debut against the Lightning on Thursday, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Khan further notes that Seider is expected to stick around with the parent club for the whole season. However, the two-way nature of the prospect's contract -- along with the fact that he's exempt from waivers -- means Seider can be sent to AHL Grand Rapids if the rookie blueliner ends up needing to refine his game. Expectations are once again low for the Red Wings this season, but there's hope that Seider, the team's sixth overall selection from 2019, can give the club a lift as a power-play quarterback with a level of upside that this team hasn't seen from the blue line in many years.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Will be on Germany's Olympic roster

    Seider has been named to Germany's 2022 Olympic roster, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Seider, a highly touted blue-line prospect, generated seven goals and 21 assists through 41 games for Rogle BK Angelholm of the Swedish Hockey League last season, but his roots are with the Mannheim Eagles, a team in his native Germany. Seider's first order of business is cracking the Opening Night roster for the Red Wings; he has a goal and two helpers through five preseason contests.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Coach assesses prospect

    Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill is teaching Seider to move the puck down the ice quicker, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Seider delivered a goal and an assist on the power play in Monday's 6-4 preseason loss to the Blackhawks, albeit with a minus-3 rating. Blashill acknowledged both the good and bad in the German's performance, but there's still time for Seider, Detroit's 2019 sixth overall pick, to iron out the kinks. The Wings are scheduled for three more preseason contests before they play host to the Lightning in the Oct. 14 opener.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Transfered to Swedish league

    The Red Wings have reassigned Seider to Rogle of the SHL.

    Seider was originally going to play in his native Germany ahead of the 2020-21 NHL campaign, but the start of the DEL season has been delayed, so he'll head to Sweden for now. The sixth overall pick from the 2019 draft notched 22 points in 49 games with AHL Grand Rapids last season. He'll be recalled ahead of Detroit's training camp and could be a full-time player with the big club next season.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Loaned to German club

    The Red Wings loaed Seider to Adler Mannheim of the DEL on Friday.

    Seider spent the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Grand Rapids, notching 22 points in 49 games while posting a minus-5 rating. The sixth overall pick from the 2019 draft will be recalled by Detroit ahead of next season's training camp and should make his NHL debut at some point in 2020-21.

  • Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Set to return to minor-league play

    Seider (undisclosed) is expected to be in the lineup for AHL Grand Rapids on Friday, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

    Seider has managed two goals and 18 assists in 46 contests during his first professional season. The sixth-overall pick from 2019 should continue to ply his trade in the minors for another year or two before getting a look with the parent club as part of an upcoming youth movement in Detroit.
