    Default Samuelsson joins Oil Kings

    The Edmonton Oil Kings are very proud to announce U.S. born Henrik Samuelsson will join the team from Modo in the Swedish Elite League. Samuelsson is a 94-born 6'2 192 pound forward with U.S. citizenship who grew up in the United States playing in North America for most of his developmental years and as part of the U.S. National Development Program. Samuelsson has played for Team USA at the 2011 U17 World Hockey Challenge where he totalled 10 points in five games as well as the World U18 Hockey Championship.

    "Henrik is a solid addition to our team." said Oil Kings GM Bob Green "He's a player who brings with him a high level of skill with size and strength. He is a great fit for our hockey club."

    This move means the Oil Kings now have a roster of 25 with a trio of U.S. imports - Samuelsson, Tyler Maxwell (Californian) and Cody Corbett (Minnesota).
    Samuelsson is eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft and is the son of former NHL journeyman Ulf Samuelsson who also coached him in Modo. He is expected to arrive in Edmonton on Monday following this weekends games against Lethbridge and Swift Current.

    this is a great pick up by the Oil Kings & costs them nothing... to add a big piece like that at this time of the year to a team that is already 1 of the best in the league is huge.... they just need a backup goalie now as insurance

    Just curious what all happened with Edmonton. Did Samuelson end up being counted as an import. Is he 20 and that is why you had to trade Cam Reid to Portland? Do you need to add anything today to make a run for it?

    Henrik is a 94 and touted as a first rounder in this years NHL draft, will be interesting to see how he fits in to the Oilkings roster.Oilkings fans should be expecting big results from this kid

    Up 6, and putting out top line on 2 of the 5 on 3 powerplays. People around the league will remember it. Laxdal has no class and doesn't understand the unwritten rules. You don't deserve any success.
