Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Still does plenty in second season
Seider capped off his second NHL campaign with five goals, 37 assists and 15 power-play points through 82 games.
Last season, Seider deposited 50 points and put the Calder Trophy on his mantel, but this season, the talented puck-moving defenseman took a small step back offensively as he adjusted to a new coach in Derek Lalonde. However, there is absolutely no cause for concern when it comes to Seider. The German is a tenacious competitor, and it shouldn't be lost on fantasy managers that he leveled up to the tune of 190 blocked shots and 207 hits this year. Detroit is expected to give serious consideration to blue-line prospect Simon Edvinsson next season, which should take some pressure off Seider if the former ultimately wins a spot on the 23-man roster....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Posts two assists
Seider posted two assists and a plus-3 rating in the Red Wings' 7-4 win over the Penguins on Tuesday.
Seider picked up helpers on Andrew Copp's goal and David Perron's power-play goal. This performance snaps a six-game point drought for the defenseman. After posting 50 points in his rookie season, Seider has taken a step back offensively this season with five goals and 37 points in 73 games.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Shines on special teams Sunday
Seider scored his first career shorthanded goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.
Both points came in the second period, helping the Red Wings build a 4-0 lead they managed not to squander. Seider recorded his first multi-point performance since Feb. 11 in the process, and the second-year blueliner has five goals and 35 points through 66 games on the season. The sixth overall pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft still possesses elite upside that could someday have him challenging for Norris Trophies, but those days haven't yet arrived.... See More ...

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Sets up power-play goal
Seider managed a power-play assist and four hits in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
Seider has just one goal and two assists over the past 10 games, but the electrifying two-way defenseman continues to play his heart out. He amassed four blocked shots and eight hits in Tuesday's loss to the Senators and followed it up with four more blocked shots and seven hits in the ensuing contest against the Kraken. While GM Steve Yzerman made a series of moves at the trade deadline, it was clear all along that Seider -- last year's Calder Trophy winner -- wasn't going anywhere.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Earns assist Monday
Seider notched an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 6-1 win over the Canucks.
Seider has been handing out apples left and right with 11 of them over his last 11 games. He's also gone plus-3 in that span. The 21-year-old defenseman appears to have put his slow start to the season behind him with this recent run of success. He's up to three goals, 26 helpers, 86 shots on net, 119 hits, 125 blocked shots and a minus-10 rating through 52 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Two helpers in Saturday's win
Seider collected two assists in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.
Both helpers came in the first three minutes of the first period as Detroit grabbed a lead it wouldn't relinquish. Seider has shaken off his early-season slump, and in 13 games over the last month he's racked up one goal and 15 points, putting the 21-year-old firmly back on track to becoming an elite fantasy asset off the blue line....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Continues to battle hard
Seider delivered three blocked shots and six hits in Friday's 2-0 loss to the Islanders.
Seider's game is centered around grit and determination. He posted three apples in the prior contest -- a 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens -- and the blueliner followed it up with a strong defensive effort against the Isles. Seider and the Wings will look to bounce back offensively versus the Oilers on Tuesday; for the season, he's produced three goals and 21 assists through 48 games.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Eleven points in last nine games
Seider collected three assists Thursday in a 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens.
One helper came on the power play. The season started slowly for the wunderkind (13 points in 38 games), but he's gotten hot in his last nine games (one goal, 10 assists). If he can keep this up, Seider will be a sneaky fantasy play over the second half.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Seeing uptick in offense
Seider produced an assist in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Flyers.
Seider is rounding into form after a slow start, as he's produced a goal and eight assists through 10 games since the calendar flipped to 2023. The reigning Calder Trophy winner has also supplied 102 hits and 107 blocked shots on the season to maintain his reputation as one of the league's most complete blueliners at 21 years old....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Provides power-play assist
Seider logged a power-play assist, five hits and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.
Seider's resurgent January continues -- he has a goal and seven helpers through eight games this month. The 21-year-old defenseman is up to 20 points (eight on the power play), 70 shots on net, 99 hits, 102 blocked shots and a minus-14 rating through 43 contests. He's shown glimpses lately, enough to think that he'll be better in the second half of the campaign than he was in the first.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Explodes for four points
Seider posted four assists and three shots, leading the Red Wings to a 7-5 win over the Jets on Tuesday.
The first star of Tuesday's contest, Seider picked up assists on all three Red Wing goals in the first period and Dylan Larkin's power-play goal in the second period. While the German defenseman has been a disappointment in the points department to start the 2022-23 campaign, Tuesday's performance could be the spark that sets off a strong second half. Seider is now up to two goals and 17 points in 39 games.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Busts slump
Seider produced a power-play assist in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Devils.
Seider snapped an eight-game point drought with the man-advantage helper, but it was too little, too late, as the Devils dominated in the second and third frames to snag this road victory. The second-year blueliner has two goals and 11 assists through 36 games, which isn't moving the needle much in fantasy leagues, though Seider does have 78 hits and 87 blocked shots to provide a boost in some of the ancillary categories....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Garners helper in narrow loss
Seider registered an assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.
This was the first point in five December contests for Seider. The German has been inconsistent offensively in his second NHL season, and so far, he's manufactured only four power-play points after turning in 21 of those on the way to a Calder Trophy-winning campaign. Nonetheless, Seider continues to showcase his dogged determination in the defensive zone based on 61 hits and 63 blocked shots through 27 games.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Collects two points in loss
Seider had a goal, an assist and three shots during Monday's 4-2 defeat to the visiting Maple Leafs.
With six points in his past five games, Seider, who opened Monday's scoring off a first-period scramble in front of the net, is starting to produce offensively the way many insiders expected of the 2022 Rookie of the Year. What's not expected from the 21-year-old defenseman's stat line is the growing number of minus ratings, despite him entering Monday leading the Red Wings in average ice time (22:59). During his past eight appearances, Seider is a combined minus-11.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Three apples send Jackets away
Seider delivered three assists Saturday in a 6-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
Two of the helpers came on the power play. Seider has struggled thus far to replicate his impressive 50-point rookie season (2021-22), but his last two efforts (one goal, three assists) may signal the start of a change. He was pressing just a bit too much to this point, trying to do everything, and it was impacting him in all zones. Seider will be fine long term and is clearly the Wings' top dog for the next 12-15 years. Short term, it could take a little bit for him to completely settle into his game.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Gets first goal of season
Seider scored a goal on three shots, blocked three shots and went minus-2 in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Sharks.
Seider's offensive struggles are no secret, but even he couldn't be kept silenced in this high-scoring contest. He ended a four-game point drought with the goal, which came at 13:54 of the third period and stood as the game-winner. The second-year defenseman has six points, 31 shots on net, 40 blocked shots, 36 hits and a minus-6 rating through 17 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Back on scoresheet
Seider collected a shorthanded assist in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Islanders.
This was the third shorthanded assist for Seider in his young career, and there should be more to come since the prized defenseman is fearless and always willing to jump into the action. The Calder Trophy winner is off to a disappointing start with three apples comprising his point total through 11 contests, but fantasy managers are urged to be patient. Under the direction of new coach Derek Lalonde, Seider is starting his 5-on-5 shifts in the offensive zone roughly 35 percent of the time, but in order to get him going offensively, we project he'll see closer to a 50-50 split in terms of zone starts as the season progresses....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Manages assist in loss
Seider produced an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Sabres.
Seider picked up his second point of the campaign when he helped out on David Perron's second-period tally. Both of Seider's points have been assists, and his slow start will make it tough for him to match the 50-point pace he produced as a rookie last year. The 21-year-old has at least partially offset his lack of offense with 23 blocked shots, 20 hits, 17 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through nine contests, but fantasy managers expected more from the second-year rearguard....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Gets on scoresheet Sunday
Seider notched a power-play assist, five blocked shots, two shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.
Seider helped out on Dylan Larkin's goal just 2:02 into the contest. The assist ended Seider's drought on offense to begin the year -- he had been held off the scoresheet in the first four games. The 21-year-old has partially made up for it with his usual supply of non-scoring numbers. He has 12 blocks, nine hits and 14 shots on net in five contests. He'll have some work to do to catch up to the 50-point pace he set as a rookie last year.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Points elusive early on
Seider, the reigning Calder Trophy winner, is plus-2 with five blocked shots and seven hits through the first three games. However, he is still looking for his first point of the young season.
Ideally, Seider would have some points by now, but it's far too early to panic. The 21-year-old defenseman already has 11 shots on goal and he's averaging 3:13 of ice time on the man advantage. Detroit has found early success with a number of offseason pickups -- including Ben Chiarot, who forms the top defensive pair with Seider -- and it seems like it's only matter of time before the blue-line phenom starts lighting it up in the box score....
