from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

It was a milestone that Lucas Raymond and Moritz Seider shared, and likely the first of many going forward.

Both players participated in the 100th game of their young careers Saturday in Columbus, a quickly achieved milestone from two players who've made quick impressions around the NHL.

"Impressed by both of them," coach Derek Lalonde said of the duo's achievement. "It's impressive what they've done in 100 games. It's almost unfair what we ask of them. You take Mo, every situation he's always against their (opponents') top line, he's first out on the penalty kill, first out on the power play. Raymond, it's very similar.

"It's experience by fire, both of them and they're handling it very well."

Both players were a bit surprised by how quickly 100 games came about.

"It feels like it's gone very quick," Raymond said. "But for sure it's fun and exciting."

Both have enjoyed the fact they've had each other to lean on and go through their young NHL careers.

"We've been through this together from the start," Raymond said. "He's a good friend and it's going to be fun to play (into the future)."

Both played all 82 games last season, and haven't missed a game this season, a sign of their durability and ability to consistently produce despite being so young (Seider is 21; Raymond 20).

"We've been lucky to play all 82 last year and stayed healthy and overall it's been great having him on my side," said Seider, who won the NHL's Calder Trophy (rookie of the year) after last season. "We've been able to go through a lot of stuff together and it's been real good to see how he adjusts his game."
