Everyone understands that comparing Moritz Seider to Nicklas Lidstrom is unfair. Seider is a rookie. Lidstrom is one of the top three defensemen in NHL history. But Seider’s play has been impressive to the point there’s no other logical comparison.

“I think as the season has gone on, he’s just gotten more confident every game,”  Detroit defenseman Danny DeKeyser said. “Seems like when he has the puck on his stick, he always wants to make a really good play with it.”

Seider has 17 points in 25 games. He leads all NHL rookies in assists with 14. Moritz Seider is on a scoring pace that would give him a shot at the Red Wings’ record of 60 points by a rookie defenseman. That’s held jointly by Reed Larson and Nicklas Lidstrom.
