|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.|
|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.|
|Depth defenseman with a little upside.|
