Red Wings defenseman Moritz Seider was thrilled to meet Roman Josi at the NHL Awards.

There was a lot going on during NHL Awards night for Detroit Red Wings defenseman Moritz Seider. He was winning the Calder Trophy for starters. The Red Wings surprised him by flying in the brass and captain Dylan Larkin to share in the moment with him.

Seider also got to meet his NHL idol. He’s a big fan of Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi, who was on hand for the big show as a Norris Trophy finalist.

“Yeah, meeting Roman Josi for the first time was not as exciting as winning the award but still pretty special,” Seider admitted. “It was a really cool moment.

“When you watch a guy for so many years and finally meet him and are congratulating him on a great season, it’s a pretty cool feeling,”

Josi, the 2019-20 Norris winner, led all NHL defensemen in assists (73) and points (96) last season. Although he received the most first-place votes (98), it was Cale Maker of the Colorado Avalanche who won the 2021-22 Norris Trophy.
