Well, this certainly isn’t something that fans of the Detroit Red Wings needed to see right now.
Defenseman Moritz Seider, whom the team selected 6th overall in the 2019 NHL Draft and is currently playing for Rögle BK in the Swedish Hockey League, had to be assisted off the ice after taking an awkward hit from Jon Knuts of Leksands IF:

He’ll not return to the contest, per Rögle BK’s Twitter feed, but is “feeling well.”

Seider has been known to dish out big hits but was on the receiving end this time around.
