Yahoo Sports’ Psihogios praises Moritz Seider in his weekly fantasy hockey column

Among Yahoo Sports Stephen Psihogios’ 10 Fantasy Hockey Takeaways:

Moritz Seider (82 percent rostered on Yahoo) has been special

If you were one of the lucky people who plucked Moritz Seider off the waiver wire at the beginning of the year, congratulations: you’re rostering a stellar defenceman.

Seider recorded his 20th-career point this past week and became the third-fastest Detroit Red Wings blueliner to reach the mark as a rookie. The 29 games it took for Seider to hit the plateau sit just seven behind the great Nicklas Lidstrom, and any time your name is beside his, that’s a sign that you’re doing something right.

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t good news for Jeff Sharples (whom I admittedly had to look up after reading this), but it seems much more plausible that Seider has more in common with Lidstrom than Sharples.

Currently, Seider is on pace for 57 points, which would be the most from any rookie blueliner since, coincidentally, Lidstrom tallied 60 points in 1991-92. 

What we’ve seen out of the young German rearguard so far is very impressive, and those who were proactive in fantasy are reaping the rewards.
