Of disparate Red Wings-related news this morning:
- The British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) headlines its examination of the Chilliwack Chiefs’ rookies with a scouting report of Red Wings draft pick Bryan Moore, a 2019 Red Wings draft pick:
Hometown: Cos Cob, Conn.
Previous team: Brunswick School (USHS-Prep)
Commitment: University of North Dakota (2020-21)
Drafted: 5th Round (128th overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in 2019
Moore was over a point per game last year with Brunswick where he totaled 31 points in 28 games from the back end. The Chiefs weren’t the only ones who took notice as he was selected in the fifth round by the Detroit Red Wings in June’s draft.
[Chilliwack coach Brian] Maloney’s scouting report:
“We’re pretty fortunate to be able to land him. He’s a dynamic, smooth-skating, electric defenceman that we feel like is going to help us get to pucks quickly, move pucks and be able to jump up in the play. Not only is he a darn good player, but we’ve been talking to this player for over a year now and we’ve got a really good sense of who he is as a person.
We can’t forget that Cooper went fourth overall in the USHL draft. I think that’s really phenomenal for our league. I think these kids are really doing their homework now. This is an American kid as well. We should be pretty proud of our league and where it’s heading. It’s always been a darn good league and we’ve known that, but I think it’s starting to really spread throughout North America.”
2. As something of a follow-up to yesterday’s interview with Nicklas Lidstrom, Expressen’s Peter Thunborg and Rasmus Karlsson posted an article which states the post-retirement situations of several Swedish hockey stars, including one Nicklas Lidstrom:

3. Finally, Moritz Seider gave a short interview to Sport1.de, but it doesn’t share much that’s new, merely confirming that Seider was the “surprise pick of the draft” at #6 overall, that Seider himself was shocked when he was drafted as high as he was, and noting that Seider will return to North America this fall for the Wings’ prospect tournament in Traverse City.
