When he skates out between the boards, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Moritz Seider can relate to what it feels like to be an attractive woman stepping out on the dance floor in a popular nightclub.
From every angle, it seems, guys are hitting on him.
Seider’s response to it all? Bring it on. Do your worst.
And should you hit him hard, as long as it’s fair, not to worry. You won’t have to fight Seider because of it.
“As long as it’s fair and square and right into my face I don’t have a problem with anyone playing hard,” Seider explained. “I think that’s the respect everyone is showing to the game.”

Did yzerman give him bad news?
Not surprising. Did not expect him to be back next year. Changes a comin'
from Dan Kingerski of Detroit Hockey Now,
Depending on who you talk to, the Red Wings either landed a high-caliber center or a fire-breathing dragon when they drafted Marco Kasper eighth overall in 2021.
When Swedish hockey folks talk about Kasper they start by pointing out how molten his competitive juice can flow. He oozes fire and passion. At 18, he owned the third-highest penalty total (72 minutes) in the Swedish Hockey League.
“I think it’s always important to play with an edge in your game,” Kasper said after he helped the Red Wings defeated the Maple Leafs’ 5-2 in his NHL debut April 2.
Eriksson Ek Style?
Some in Sweden compare Kasper’s playing style to Minnesota Wild Swedish center Joel Eriksson Ek. He scored 23 goals this season and 26 the previous season. He’s averaged 128 hits per season over the past two seasons. Eriksson Ek is likely to earn Selke Trophy votes for the third consecutive season. Eriksson Ek is a couple inches taller, but what does that matter if Kasper always plays big?
The Red Wings called up Kasper March 30 after his Rogle season. They wanted to see where he is at against NHL competition. They were very disappointed that Kasper only got to play one game with the Red Wings before he was injured. He was hurt 10 minutes into the game, suffering a broken knee cap. He played the rest of the game without complaint.
