Observations

December 2018 – Seider has been spending his 17-year-old season in the DEL which is the top league in Germany. He has just one point (a goal) in 15 games. He does have a history of putting up points in junior but he hasn’t been able to show that side of his game at the pro level just yet.

At six-foot-four, Seider has a big frame. He’s a good skater for someone his size, and his mobility is pretty good as well. He has good passing skills and vision. He can move the puck and carry it himself. He likes to join the rush. Defensively, he’s solid. A smart player who knows how to use his size and strength. Calm under pressure. Not afraid to play the body, and capable of making big hits.

Most recently, Seider played at the Division I Group A part of the World Junior Championship tournament. Even though Seider is just 17 years old, he captained Team Germany and was arguably their top defenseman. Germany won the tournament and earned a spot at the 2020 World Juniors. Seider played big minutes on Germany’s blue line, including time on the top power play and on the penalty kill. He finished the tournament with seven points in five games.

Seider plays a mature game, and when you add his big frame to it, he could make the jump to the NHL pretty quickly after he’s drafted. Seider is a potential first-rounder for the 2019 NHL draft.  Jokke Nevalainen
