2008-09: After an impressive season with the third-tier Hasten team in Sweden, Samuelsson fell flat this season. He potted just three points in 40 games with Timra. Perhaps Samuelsson’s biggest concern lies in his inability to put on weight.
2009-10: Samuelsson appeared in 23 Elitserien games with Timra but only scored 1 assist. He was loaned for the second consecutive season to Sundsvall in the Allsvenskan, where he scored 3 goals, 13 assists for 16 points in 36 games. He added 2 goals and 29 PIMs in 9 playoff games.
2010-11: Spent the entire season on Sweden’s Division 1’s (third-tier) Vita Hasten, where he scored 10 goals and 23 assists for 33 points over 31 games.
Samuelsson’s best trait is perhaps his outstanding hockey sense. He has very soft hands, and is a solid playmaker. Has a respectable, but not outstanding skating ability.
With many health issues, it is difficult to see Samuelsson making the NHL some day. He will have to get himself in better shape. Will likely spend the 2011-12 season in Sweden’s Division 1.
