from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, Andreas Athanasiou, Tyler Bertuzzi and Filip Hronek all have important roles on the team because they have pushed veterans aside. How soon the Wings regain competitiveness and make it back to the playoffs depends largely on how soon another wave of prospects establish themselves as impact players.

Shawn Horcoff logs a lot of miles in his role as the team’s director of player development. He recently returned from a trip to Europe, and also keeps a close eye on the team’s North America-based prospects.

He shared his thoughts on select players...

D Moritz Seider

Buzz: Steve Yzerman’s first pick since taking over as general manager of the Wings has three points through nine games with the Griffins. Seider, 18, is adjusting to the smaller North American ice sheet.

“Mo is in the right league right now,” Horcoff said. “He’s playing in all situations, playing big minutes. He likes to jump up in the play, but he has good awareness. He has grit to his game. He likes to go into battles. He gets back for pucks quickly. He’s very mobile. There’s a lot of upside there.

“There’s no rush with him. He’s not going to be called up and thrust into anything until he is absolutely ready to play meaningful minutes.”

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.
