Seider Will Play In Germany And Kotkansalo In Finland

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Concern over the coronavirus pandemic has prompted the Detroit Red Wings to loan Moritz Seider to his old German club.

He’s not the only prospect who may have a change of address for the 2020-21 season.

Seider, who was general manager Steve Yzerman’s first pick in the 2019 draft, at No. 6 overall, has been loaned to Adler Mannheim with the understanding the Wings can bring Seider to Detroit when it looks like they will have a training camp in advance of next season. The NHL is tentatively hoping to start games Dec. 1.

“It’s a very fluid situation, but our agreement is we can recall him any time,” assistant general manager Ryan Martin told the Free Press on Monday. “We think he’s in a good spot — he’s on the ice, he’s practicing with Mannheim.”...

The pandemic prompted defenseman Kasper Kotkansalo, a third-round pick from 2017, to decide not to return to Boston University this fall, and instead stay and play in his native Finland.

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.
