Moritz Seider News
Detroit Red Wings defenseman Moritz Seider ended a cold spell with a pair of assists in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers. Both of his helpers came on the power play with Jakub Vrana and Tyler Bertuzzi the scorers. He now boasts 39 assists and 44 points for his rookie campaign. Seider, who had gone pointless in 10 of his last 11 appearances prior to Wednesday, has tied Dale McCourt for the seventh-most assists in a season by a Red Wings rookie, and he's now just 10 off from the club's rookie record, which is shared by Marcel Dionne and Nicklas Lidstrom.
Detroit Red Wings defenseman Moritz Seider stretched his point streak to eight games on Friday with an assist in a 3-1 loss to Tampa. He combined with Tyler Bertuzzi to set up Robby Fabbri 13:05 into the second period. The German rearguard became only the fourth rookie defenseman in NHL history to record a point streak of eight-plus games. Shayne Gostisbehere holds the all-time record with a 15-game streak. Seider is also the first Red Wings rookie since Steve Yzerman to get to an eight-game point streak and the first Detroit defenseman to do it since Nicklas Lidstrom. It's been a sensational rookie campaign for the 20-year-old, who's on pace to finish the season with 60-plus points.
Detroit Red Wings defenseman Moritz Seider became a history-maker on Tuesday against Carolina, setting a franchise record for the longest assist streak by a rookie defenseman. He picked up a power-play helper on Lucas Raymond's game-winning goal in overtime, and Seider now has at least one assist in seven consecutive appearances. Reed Larson previously held the record from December of 1977 with a six-game streak. The German blue-liner has tallied 35 assists and 40 points in total this season, which puts him fourth in rookie scoring. Raymond leads the pack with 43 points, but Seider might soon take over the top spot if he manages to maintain his current hot streak.
Detroit Red Wings defensemen Filip Hronek and Moritz Seider will both be in the lineup on Thursday against St. Louis. The latter was injured in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Nashville but skated at Wednesday's practice, while Hronek is deemed to be game ready despite missing yesterday's practice. The two log the most minutes per game for the team, so the Red Wings will be very happy to have the duo available. They have combined for 30 points and Seider is one of the top-scoring rookies this season with 18 points in 26 games.
