Rogle duo selected for the German national team: “We are very happy”

Detroit-loaned prospect Moritz Seider has gotten off to a flying start with Rogle in the SHL. Now he and a Rogle colleague have been selected for the German national team [playing at the Deutschland Cup] next week.

Germany’s Finnish national team manager, Toni Soderholm, has selected Rogle defenseman Moritz Seider for the German national team ahead of the Deutschland Cup.

The 19-year-old Seider, who is on loan to Rögle from the NHL team the Detroit Red Wings this season, has scored one goal and four assists in the five SHL games he has played since arriving earlier in October.

In the 5-2 victory away against Färjestad, Moritz Seider played over 21 minutes and he has played over 19 minutes on average in Rögle. Now national team games await.

Seider played the World Championship for Germany already, as an 18-year-old ,in the spring of 2019 in Bratislava. The German squad for the Deutschland Cup includes six players who took part and won Olympic silver in South Korea in 2018.

“We are very happy that some of the best German players will return a year later. We have two more days to prepare for compared to last year and we will use them intensively. We now want to keep an eye on the team with a view to the World Championship because the NHL players may not be there,” says Soderholm to the German Hockey Federation’s website.

In addition to Moritz Seider, Rogle has named his assistant coach Cory Murphy to the German coaching staff for the tournament in Krefeld, Germany next week. Rogle also has a trio in Tre Kronor next week on defenseman Niklas Hansson and forward duo Leon Bristedt and Daniel Zaar.

Germany also has a B national team in the Deutschland Cup, and these are players who may be relevant for the Olympics in China 2022.
