In the uncertain corona virus situation, top ice hockey talent Moritz Seider temporarily returns to the Mannheim eagles. The 19-year-old is borrowed from the Detroit Red Wings.
National player Seider, who was drafted in sixth place last summer by the NHL team from Detroit, can now take part in the training and games in Mannheim.
The loan agreement could “be terminated by Detroit at any time,” said the Adler. It remains unclear whether and how often the defender could actually be used.
Adler-Manager is pleased about the proof of trust
The Champions Hockey League starts in early October, but the season in the German Ice Hockey League should not start until November 13th. The NHL start is not yet foreseeable, but then Seider could also be called back to the USA.
“The loan is a clear sign of trust from the Red Wings, which honors us very much. Moritz has found the perfect conditions for us to keep fit and hopefully also to gain experience in the game,” said Adler manager Jan-Axel Alavaara.
No missions in the NHL yet
In his first year in North America, Seider was not in the strongest league in the world, instead he played for Detroit’s farm team Grand Rapid Griffins in the AHL.
Seider recently described this summer as particularly crucial for his career. Detroit did not qualify for the ongoing ongoing NHL season.
