Detroit Red Wings vs. Edmonton Oilers: Player to Watch – Moritz Seider

The Detroit Red Wings return from the all-star break to take on the Edmonton Oilers with puck drop set for 7:30 PM in Detroit. This is the Red Wings’ first matchup against the Oilers this season after they played twice last season with the Red Wings winning the first matchup in Detroit 4-2 and then the Oilers won the matchup in Edmonton 7-5.

Tonight’s Detroit Red Wings player to watch: Moritz Seider

Seider had been playing some of his best hockey of the season before the all-star break and tonight he has a tough task on the defensive side going up against one of the best goal-scorers in the league in Connor McDavid. Seider has appeared in all 48 Red Wings games this season scoring three goals and tallying 21 assists for 24 points ranking him eighth on the team in points and he is tied for third on the team in assists.

In the last five games, Seider has zero goals and four assists for four points but three assists in his last three games. At the start of the season, he was paired up with Ben Chiarot but as of late, he has been playing alongside Jake Walman, and the switch saw his season take a drastic turn for the better.  

Seider played 34 games with Chiarot and had two goals with 13 assists for 15 points, since the change with Walman in 14 games he has one goal and 11 assists for 12 points almost close to averaging a point a game.

Seider plays on the first line of the power-play unit along with Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin, Jonatan Berggren, and Lucas Raymond.

  • Seider has one power play goal.
  • Seider has eight assists on the power play.
  • Seider has nine power-play points.

Seider’s numbers against the Oilers.

Against the Oilers in his career, Seider has only played in two games but he has a goal and an assist with his one goal coming against the Oilers on an empty netter which solidified the Red Wings’ 4-2 win over the Oilers last season.

Wrap Up

This is a tough matchup for the Red Wings as they will go up against one of the hottest teams in the league, who have won seven of their last eight games with the one loss coming in overtime to Columbus on January 25th. The Red Wings are also going up against one of the league’s top goal-scorers in Connor McDavid who leads the league in goals with 41 and leads the league in points with 92.

Seider is the physical type of player that could really slow down McDavid, he has never finished a game as a minus against the Oilers so he clearly does the job well in stopping one of the league’s most prolific scorers if he can do that again tonight the Red Wings could be looking at picking up a much needed two points and starting the second half off strong.
