When will Detroit Red Wings anoint Dylan Larkin the next captain? | Freep

I think Dylan Larkin will be named the Red Wings captain sometime before the season starts. However, the most interesting thing in Helene’s mailbag is the question about where Moritz Seider will play next year.

HSJ: Moritz Seider’s Geman Hockey League team, Mannheim Adler, starts preseason games this month and begins the regular season Sept. 13. The Wings, however, plan to have Seider, their top selection (sixth overall) from the 2019 draft, at prospects camp and main camp. Those run Sept. 6-16 in Traverse City, followed by a nine-game exhibition season. Then Yzerman and his hockey operations staff will decide where Seider is best off to start the 2019-20 season.

I’m not sure what’s better for his development. Right now, assuming he doesn’t make the NHL out of training camp, I think I’d lean towards Grand Rapids.

Where should Moritz Seider play next season?

DEL (Mannheim Adler)196
AHL (Grand Rapids Griffins)893
OHL (Owen Sound Attack)25

Not that it should surprise anyone, but there are no Red Wings on this list.
