NHL: Moritz Seider says goodbye with goal from season
Ice hockey player Moritz Seider and the Detroit Red Wings won a victory in the NHL at the end of the regular season. In the 5: 3 success of the New Jersey Devils, the 21-year-old contributed a goal and ended his rookie season with outstanding 50 scorer points.
As the table sixth of the Atlantic Division, the Red Wings clearly missed the playoffs, but were convincing across the board. Since Sweden’s legendary defender Nicklas Lidström (season 1991/92), no defensive player of the Red Wings has had so triumphed in his first NHL year.
Therefore, Seider is also the largest contender for the Calder Trophy for the best NHL newcomer to the season. He would be the first German ice hockey professional to be part of this award.
Seider’s seventh season goal was the meantime 2: 1, which he achieved with a precise wrist shot from the blue line. His 50 scorer points (seven goals/43 assists) are a value that only four defenders have reached in front of him in a rookie season since 1990.
In contrast, Leon Draisaitl and the Edmonton Oilers play for the title. The Canadians won their last point game 3-2 after penalty shooting against the Vancouver Canucks. Draisaitl, who was spared against the Canucks, meets Los Angeles Kings with assistant coach Marco Sturm in the first play-off round. The Cologne team ended the main round with 110 scorer points (55 goals and assists each) in 80 games.
Seider and supporters want to go to the World Cup
The NHL season also came to an end for Tim Stützle with a sense of achievement. The striker of the Ottawa Senators was able to look forward to a 4: 2 against the Philadelphia Flyers, to which he contributed a template. After a personally strong playing time, especially in the second half of the season, the 20-year-old closed with 22 goals and 36 assists in 79 games. However, it was not enough for the senators to qualify for the final round.
Nico Sturm and the Colorado Avalanche made a 1: 4 defeat against Sturm’s ex-team Minnesota Wild at the main round. Colorado had already been the winner of the Central Division before the game and is considered a co -favorite on the Stanley Cup. The team will meet Nashville Predators in round one of the playoffs from Wednesday.
For Seider, the German national team should now go to the German national team together with Stützle and the goalkeeper Philipp Grubauer (Seattle Kraken), which is also not qualified for the final round. The three NHL stars have all signaled their willingness to participate in the World Cup, but official confirmation is still pending. With the DEB team, the three NHL professionals at the World Cup in Finland (May 13th to 29th) want to be successful.
In the last game before the playoffs, main round leap Florida Panthers suffered a sensitive bankruptcy. The team from the Sunshine State was demonstrated by the Montreal Canadiens at 2:10. Even if some stars were spared, it was a sensitive damper in front of the duels with the Washington Capitals in the first playoff round.
