Dobber Prospects examines the Red Wings today

Dobber Prospects’ Sean Allen offers an examination of the Detroit Red Wings’ prospects this morning, discussing the Wings’ 2021 draft class, the Wings’ top prospects, and Detroit’s offseason moves (thus far):

Moritz Seider, RD

I fully anticipate a debut in the red and white for Seider in 2021-22 and expect that the hype train is just getting going on a player that is wildly dynamic all over the ice. With a straight-up nasty mean streak, responsible defensive awareness, and high-end offensive upside, I have him as a favorite to contend for the Calder as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year.

Get ready Detroit, Seider is enormously fun.

Lucas Raymond, RW

The highly anticipated arrival of Raymond to North America looks to have come. It’s expected that Raymond will at least begin with the Griffins of the AHL before making the NHL leap as he continues to build up his strength physically.

The gifted Swede didn’t blow people away on the scoresheet last season in the SHL with Frolunda but he had a strong campaign nonetheless and showed the elite offensive potential in the World Juniors Championship as a leader for Sweden with five points over five games played.

Look for his high hockey IQ to allow him to adapt very quickly to the smaller ice surface in the AHL.
