Moritz Seider Is Practicing

Ansar Khan tweet,

practice before game at St. Louis tomorrow. Seider is skating, after being shaken up from a hit in the third period last night.

added 11:46am, Khan...

Hronek is not practicing. Staal (COVID protocol) remains out.

added 11:50am, Khan again,

power play units:
1. Suter (net front), Fabbri (bumper), Raymond-Larkin (flanks), Seider (point).
2. Erne (net front), Namestnikov (bumper), Veleno-Zadina (flanks), Leddy (point).
Veleno filling in for Hronek and looks like they’re taking a look at Namestnikov on PP.

Crisis averted

Hopefully VPalm and it’s not just him he-manning through a concussion cause he was damn near out on his feet after that hit and wobbly walking down the hallway shaking the cobwebs off.

I’m glad it’s not more serious.

But I hope he isn’t as a young guy new to the league
trying to as said above to be too stoic. I’m very lucky
to have only had a fairly mild concussion playing sports
(Did fall off the top of a slide as a little kid - ok that explains it,
folks). And the mild concussion felt like what Seider’s reaction to
the hit looked like. Right out of the game. Had to get my bearings.
Tried to play it out after coming back in but knew both immediately and
an hour later it was not a normal bump and I needed to take it easy
for a couple to few days.

Not trying to play doctor through a screen with no expertise.
More just: Seider is a great kid and player and his long-term health and
career success are far more important than not missing a practice or game or two if needed. Maybe he’s testing things out and will take some time. Just hope he’s ok now and longer term.

The good news is the Wings have baseline measurements on Seider so they can better understand how the hit affected him. They don’t just take his word for it.
