Moritz Seider has been the absolute whizz kid of German ice hockey in recent years. In addition, he is pulling out all the stops in the National Hockey League. So much so that he was voted Rookie of the Year in the world‘s best league in 2022.
He is living the American dream – The 21-year-old NHL player is already one of the most promising athletes in the world. At the tender age of 16, he started his career with the Jungadler Mannheim – and progressed very rapidly to the top. He collected more than 20 awards in recent years. Since 2019, he has been under contract with the historic Detroit Red Wings, where he is part of the 2021/2022 squad and makes positive headlines almost every day. He is also getting increasingly louder in the German media world.
It is hardly surprising that not only his teammates but also the NHL (National Hockey League) itself is deeply impressed with Moritz and sees a bright future for him. His outstanding 50 scorer points is a mark that only four other rookie players have ever reached before him since 1990. He recently became the first German to be named Rookie of the Year, earning the Calder Trophy for his strong performance in his debut season with the Detroit Red Wings. In the history of the NHL, only 23 defence players have received this title.
