Moritz Seider Was Dominant At Times Last Night

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Moritz Seider has played like a poised, polished veteran defenseman all season, not a rookie.

He turned in possibly the best performance of his young NHL career on Wednesday, in the Detroit Red Wings’ 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

Seider registered two assists to bring his team- and league-rookie leading total to 27. He was physical, recorded five blocked shots and posted a plus-3 rating. He logged 23:02 and now leads the team in average ice time.

“There were times he was dominant,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “He certainly looked like a young guy with lots of confidence and really controlled the game at times.

“It’s about learning how to control the game without giving much up. That’ll be the balance he’ll have to continue to learn as he grows. Certainly, he’s a guy who can control games like that and he did to large degree for lots of the night.”
