Henrik Samuelsson has a good chance to bypass the minors and play with the Coyotes this season.
The hero of the Memorial Cup final was drafted in the first round of the 2012 Draft, 27th overall, and led the Edmonton Oil Kings to a 6-3 win over Guelph in the final as he potted two goals and set up three others. Samuelsson is looking forward to starting his professional career and is hoping it's with the Coyotes rather than a stint in the minors. "It's definitely a little pressure, but this is why we play the game — to get to the next level," Samuelsson said. "So it's good pressure. I don't mind it." Samuelsson could be a 25-30 point performer this season in the NHL and we suggest taking him late in keeper leagues but leaving him to the waiver wire in one-year leagues at this time.

Phoenix Coyotes GM Don Maloney was really impressed with the play of 2012 first round pick Henrik Samuelsson at the 2014 Memorial Cup final.

Well, what was there not to be impressed about as Samuelsson had two goals and five points in the 6-3 win for the Edmonton Oil Kings. "When the lights shone their brightest, he was the biggest star on the ice," Maloney said. "He's been able to have great success at the junior level without really pushing himself as hard as I think he can. And when I say that, it's just the pace that he plays at, the tempo, the shift-in, shift-out quickness of the game." Samuelsson will be in tough to make the Coyotes next season so expect to see him in the AHL, at least at the start of the season.

Henrik Samulesson and Girffin Reihnart helped the Edmonton Oil Kings beat the Kamloops Blazers 5-4.

Ulf's offspring is scoring at about a point-per-game rate and his piling up plenty of penalty minutes, too. If he can convert that combination of agitation and scoring to the NHL game in the future, he'll be a useful power forward in fantasy.

The Phoenix Coyotes selected forward Henrik Samuelsson with the 27th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft.

Samuelsson's father Ulf was a controversial defenseman in the NHL. He shares some of his dad's feisty tendencies, so don't be shocked if he delivers the occasional polarizing hit. It'll take a while to do so, however, as he's pegged for some serious development time before potentially making it to the NHL. He doesn't have great speed but his shot makes him an intriguing future pest.
