Seider and Raymond visited Detroit Lions Training Camp recently
With the Lions regular season right around the corner, the Red Wings still have a bit of time before they head to Traverse City to begin their own Training Camp. Both Raymond and Seider, both of whom burst onto the scene as rookies in 2021-22 with the latter winning the Calder Trophy as the League's top first-year player, were on hand and visited with Lions players including Jared Goff and Sam LaPorta, the latter of which admitted to growing up a St. Louis Blues fan!
Additionally, Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde also recently visited a practice and was also seen talking to his fellow Motor City head coach in Dan Campbell.
Preparations continue for the upcoming 2023 Lions season
The Lions have already played one of their scheduled pre-season games, and they'll be hitting the field once again tomorrow afternoon for the second warm up contest; they'll be facing the Jacksonville Jaguars at Ford Field in downtown Detroit.
