Roughly translated: Mr. Madhawk reports that Moritz Seider will be loaned to Rogle of the SHL until mid-November(?)

According to Kvallsposten’s Johan Svensson, a.k.a. Mr. Madhawk, the Red Wings are going to loan Moritz Seider to Rogle BK of the Swedish Hockey League until the DEL’s Adler Mannheim start up in mid-November. What follows is roughly translated:


Rögle is about to land in a real super talent.
According to SportExpressen’s reporting, the team is about to reach an agreement with the Detroit Redwings to loan out Moritz Seider, the club’s first choice in last season’s draft.

“It is not me who will comment on it, but he is a player we of course like to see get ice time,” says Detroit scout Håkan Andersson.

Rögle has been looking for a defenseman that can step in and take on a big role. This summer, they were in the fight for Jesper Sellgren, when he chose Frölunda.
Seider was supposed to play for Adler Mannheim, but as the situation is now, their season will not start until later.

“I know that they have talked to other clubs. The ball is entirely with Detroit and we have nothing to say about that issue,” says Adler Mannheim’s general manager Jan-Axel Alavaara.

Now it is highly probable that Seider will play with Rögle. An agreement is expected to be completed shortly

According to SportExpressen’s reporting, Rögle is completely prepared to take him in immediately, and the solution will then be, like Sellgren, Jack Drury, Joe Veleno (who also belongs to Detroit) throughout the season.

“He has been here and trained all autumn, but our league will not start in time. It is more important for such a prospect that he gets playing time and that he develops. As I said, I have heard that they have looked at another solution, but do not know if something is definite,” says Alavaara.

Detroit has high expectations of Seider. He played 23-25 ​​minutes per game in Grand Rapids last season, and had fought for a spot in the NHL team this season.

The club sees him as a future great defender and possible team captain. Now the first game in Rögle awaits.
