Discussing Moritz Seider

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Seider’s 22 points and .45 points-per-game average ranks second among Griffins defensemen. Overall, he gets high marks from Shawn Horcoff, the team’s director of player development.

“When you draft a guy as high as we drafted Moritz, there are high expectations,” Horcoff said. “We are really happy with where he is at, with where he was at when the league shut down. He was playing 23-plus minutes a night, sometimes 25. His offensive game is really starting to come — you’re starting to see more puck-moving ability, more pucks through to the net. His shot has improved. He is playing much more on the power play and it looks like he’s getting more and more comfortable there.”

Seider, who played in Germany’s top men’s league in 2018-19, has good physicality. He’s big, he can skate, and he has some bite to him. He can move the puck and defend.

“He looks like a player that can play in every situation," Horcoff said, "who is an all-package guy."

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.
