The Detroit Red Wings couldn’t qualify for the NHL playoffs. But some of their players are having a heavy impact at the World Championships in Finland. Pius Suter added another goal to help Switzerland win its pool by downing Germany 4-3 in a shootout Tuesday.
Detroit star rookie defenseman Moritz Seider was a dominant performer for Germany, registering two assists and earning player of the game honors.
Suter, who had 36 points for the Red Wings, ranks sixth in tournament scoring with three goals and eight points in seven games. Seider has five assists in the tournament and is +5 on defense.
The undefeated Swiss, ranked No. 1 in their pool, now play the Americans Thursday in the quarterfinals.
