Scouting Report
Assets: Excels in a shutdown role. Owns a projectable frame and good defensive instincts. Has very good pedigree as the son of former NHL shutdown defenseman Ulf Samuelsson.
Flaws: Does not have much offensive upside, so his future lies as a defensive defenseman at the highest level. Also, he does not have as much of a nasty streak as his father did.
Career Potential: Depth defenseman.
