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