from Ian Kennedy of The Hockey News,
It's no surprise now, but the Detroit Red Wings have a star and generational staple on their blueline in Moritz Seider.
The 6-foot-4 defender has dominated this season as an NHL rookie, both physically and in driving offense for Detroit. His story has only just begun, and, thankfully for him and the Red Wings, more help is on the way.
Scouts have been closely monitoring 2021 sixth overall pick Simon Edvinsson. A 6-foot-5 juggernaut, Edvinsson, was ranked as the NHL's seventh best prospect in The Hockey News’ recent Future Watch and has been highly touted this season for his performance in the SHL with Frolunda.
And then there's William Wallinder, the 32nd pick in 2020. After Seider won the SHL's junior player of the year last season, Wallinder, standing at 6-foot-4, managed to do the same.
Before the campaign, Wallinder was seen as a player in need of strength and seasoning. If his results this season are any indication, which included scoring 19-points in 47-games while averaging more than 23-minutes on the ice for Rogle, the third tower is closer to NHL ready than some might perceive.
