Playing career

Samuelsson was drafted twenty-seventh overall by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft whilst playing major junior hockey for the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League. On March 11, 2013, he was signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Coyotes.[3]

On February 26, 2015, Henrik made his NHL debut in a game against the New York Rangers. His father Ulf was in attendance as an assistant coach for the Rangers.[4]

During the 2016–17 season, having contributed with just 2 goals in 20 games with AHL affiliate the Tucson Roadrunners, Samuelsson was traded by the Coyotes to the Edmonton Oilers, in exchange for former junior teammate, Mitch Moroz, on February 1, 2017.[5] With the Oilers AHL affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors, Samuelsson appeared in 5 scoreless games.

As a free agent, Samuelsson opted to continue his career in the ECHL, agreeing to a one-year deal with the Idaho Steelheads on September 7, 2017.[6]

Personal life

Henrik is the son of two-time Penguins Stanley Cup winner, Ulf Samuelsson, and his older brother Philip currently plays for the Montreal Canadiens organization. Samuelsson was born in Pittsburgh, while his father was a member of the Penguins. As a result of his father's career, Samuelsson lived in four different cities before settling in Scottsdale, Arizona, following the latter's playing career.
