Observations:

 

 

July 2013- With the last pick of the 2008 draft, Detroit selected Jesper Samuelsson hoping they could strike gold… again. Unfortunately Samuelsson hasn’t elevated his game to a high enough level to make it in the Swedish Elite League let alone the NHL. Samuelsson, known for his offensive instincts, sees the ice and reads the play with ease because of his superb vision which makes him a lethal weapon when on the powerplay. At the age of 25, it is beginning to look like Samuelsson’s window of opportunity is closing if it hasn’t already.  Travis Watson

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: D-

Talented offensive player but when playing against stronger competition he has struggled to produce.
