OctoPulse podcast: Moritz Seider on his Red Wings' future, growth of German hockey

The Detroit News

Top Red Wings' prospect Moritz Seider talks about his future in the organization and the growth of German hockey on this week's OctoPulse podcast.

The 19-year-old German defenseman was loaned to the Mannheim Eagles in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL), Germany's top-tier men's league.

Seider will be allowed to practice with Mannheim and could play regular-season games when the season begins in early November.

If the Red Wings resume skating or practicing for the first time since the NHL season was shut down on March 12, Seider could return to Detroit.

Here are some of the highlights from an interview with Seider recorded in April in episode 33 of the OctoPulse podcast:
