Moritz Seider Looks Just Fine At The World Championship

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Red Wings fans who strolled from the barbecue or lawn chair Monday had another chance to gaze at the Red Wings' future.

Moritz Seider was playing for Germany in the world championships against Team USA — and didn’t look out of place as a 20-year-old defenseman.

Team USA won the game 2-0 — which included a scary moment for former Red Wing Justin Abdelkader, who suffered an apparent knee injury — but Seider did all his could with three shots on net in 16 minutes 33 seconds (second among German defensemen) and playing with poise all over the ice, on both specialty teams.

One more reason to be excited about the upcoming Wings’ season.

“He’s got a lot of work to do, but there’s a lot of potential for him,” said general manager Steve Yzerman, during Yzerman’s season-ending media session. “We’re excited to have him here next year. Our hope is he’s ready to play for the Red Wings at the start of the season.”

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.
