The Detroit Red Wings youngsters are going to be exciting, if nothing else.

It was pretty evident early on that the Detroit Red Wings are a much younger group this year. The youngsters who made the roster out of training camp, like Lucas Raymond and Moritz Seider. Each of them showed that they are going to be a fun duo to watch.

Fans likely knew this after both of their arrivals in Detroit and the stops along the way, but they are proving they will be exciting additions to this Red Wings. Both of them are young and going to be going through some spurts of excellent play and some spurts of struggles.

But, it seems that Lucas Raymond is showing that he will continue to prove he deserves a spot after looking similar to what he did during training camp. It’s way too early to make too many observations, but he seems like he could settle in nicely with the Red Wings in 2021-22.

When it comes to Moritz Seider, it’s more of the same. He was throwing the body around, playing physical, and even challenging veteran players between players after whistles. Seider is going to be a defender that excels defensively but who also taps into the offense to be valuable on both ends of the ice.

Even after one official regular-season game, it seems like Seider is bringing the same energy he did overseas the last couple of seasons. He’s got such a high ceiling, and it seems like he’s going to be plenty of entertainment for fans.

Both youngsters will be, so sit back and enjoy these youngsters as they develop.
