Moritz Seider Showing Why The Wings Drafted Him With The 6th Pick

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Lucas Raymond was all the rage coming out of the previous weekend, the young forward's three-goal game in Chicago taking the NHL by storm.

This past weekend, there's buzz about the Wings' other impactful rookie, defenseman Moritz Seider.

Assisting on Filip Zadina's power-play goal Saturday stretched Seider's point streak to five consecutive games (all assists). Seider has eight points on the season (all assists). He's been on the scoresheet in seven of his first nine NHL games.

Seider is becoming the type of defenseman whose explosive shot can produce the type of offense the Wings haven't seen in a long time.

"It's something we've talked about," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He does a good job that way. He knows how to get pucks through. If we can get our power play going, he and Nick Leddy and Filip Hronek will all have more points.

"Certainly it's a big piece and he (Seider) can be a real good all-around defenseman. That's what we've felt since the day he was drafted. We have to keep pushing him to make sure he can be all that he can be."
