TAMPA, Fla. (June 21, 2022) – Defenseman Moritz Seider of the Detroit Red Wings is the 2021-22 recipient of the Calder Memorial Trophy, presented “to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition,” as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

Detroit’s first Calder Trophy finalist since 2009-10 (Jimmy Howard), Seider is the sixth player in franchise history to win the award and first since Roger Crozier in 1964-65.

Seider was a resounding winner, collecting 170 first-place votes among the 195 ballots cast for 1,853 voting points. Second-place Trevor Zegras of the Anaheim Ducks received 15 first-place votes and was the second choice on 100 others for 1,191 points, followed by Michael Bunting of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who ranked third in voting with 877 points (seven first-place selections).


Seider paced rookie defensemen with 7-43—50, a point total surpassed by only two rookie blueliners over the last 30 years (Quinn Hughes: 8-45—53 in 2019-20 w/ VAN; Vladimir Malakhov: 14-38—52 in 1992-93 w/ NYI) and just two rookie defensemen in Detroit history (Reed Larson: 19-41—60 in 1977-78; Nicklas Lidstrom: 11-49—60 in 1991-92). Seider, the sixth overall selection from the 2019 NHL Draft, led all 2021-22 rookies (forwards and defensemen) in assists (43), power-play assists (19) and power-play points (21), while ranking among the top five in shots on goal (3rd; 187), points (4th; 50) and game-winning goals (t-5th; 4). He played in each of the Red Wings’ 82 contests to also lead all rookies in total time on ice (1,889:22) and minutes per game (23:02) – franchise rookie records in both categories (which have been tracked since 1997-98).

As it should be, but still surprised. You know how Detroit teams are treated. smirk

I’d love to know who the 4 people were who voted him 4th.

An absolute landslide, as it should be.

“You know how Detroit teams are treated.”

Yeah, the league consistently makes changes to the draft based on what Detroit suggests.

What does that have to do with the Calder Trophy?

I’m super happy for him, and it’s awesome to see someone on this team win such a special award… It’s been a long time.

Seider certainly earned this award, and I’m damn happy to have him on the Wings!

At the 1:25 mark in the video of the Detroit players offering their congrats to Seider, Sergei Fedorov and Dominick Hasek appear.  The only non-current players in the video.

I meant how the games are called against the Wings (AKA Pittsburgh) and the yearly dropping down in the draft order. smirk
