From Detroit Red Wings:
Seider, 18, was Detroit’s first-round selection (sixth overall) at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, held at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, on June 21-22. The 6-foot-4, 207-pound defenseman went on to skate in the Red Wings’ Development Camp from June 25-29 at the BELFOR Training Center inside Little Caesars Arena. Seider spent the 2018-19 season with Adler Mannheim of the Deutsch Eishockey Liga, playing professionally in Germany’s highest league as a 17-year-old en route to winning the league’s Rookie of the Year award. In 29 games with the club, Seider logged six points (2-4-6), a plus-two rating and eight penalty minutes, which marked the second-highest scoring season ever for an under-18 defenseman in the DEL. He also appeared in all 14 postseason games for Mannheim as the team won the DEL championship, contributing five assists.
