Scouting Report
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. 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.
Long Range Potential: Depth defenseman.
