The Detroit Red Wings’ defensive problems could be compounded if they lose Moritz Seider for any length of time.
Seider was hit on the side of his left knee with a shot with five minutes remaining in Thursday’s 5-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena.
The 6-4 rookie defensemen went down in pain before being helped off the ice by trainer Piet Van Zant.
Coach Jeff Blashill did not have an update immediately after the game.
“Too early. I’m not certain,” Blashill said. “I didn’t even have a chance to talk to our trainer yet.”

This wasn't a fun evening for the Red Wings in the entertainment capital of the world.
The Wings are leaving Vegas like so many other visitors, a little worse for wear, after losing 5-2 to the undermanned Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.
Vegas scored four times in the second period, as the Wings' defensive issues continued to materialize at unfortunate times and the Wings (8-9-2) lost their third consecutive game on this four-game road trip, and fourth in the last five games overall.
"And we're getting good goaltending," forward Sam Gagner said. "It's just a scenario where we have to be better defensively. We talked about that being our identity and it has to be a lot better."
Below watch Sam Gagner and Jeff Blashill postgame and the game highlights.
