Day One Of Detroit's Development Camp

06/25/2019 at 5:10pm EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Moritz Seider’s whirlwind week segued from Vancouver to Detroit, where he was welcomed with the excitement befitting a highly regarded prospect.

Shortly after the Detroit Red Wings drafted him at sixth overall in the draft on Friday, Seider received a phone call from Dylan Larkin.

“I was so excited,” Seider said Tuesday as the Wings began a five-day development camp at Little Caesars Arena. “I didn’t know what I had to say. It was really cool.”

While Larkin called Seider, another Red Wings first-round pick was busy taking the advice of general manager Steve Yzerman and Googled the German defenseman.

“Seider is a real good defenseman,” Veleno said. “I’ve seen a couple of his clips and he moves well, skates well.”


I may or may not add to this later today, it all depends if it is actually newsworthy and not just interviews for the sake of an interview.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
