June 2022- Recording just 11 points during the shortened 2020-21 WHL season, Samson showed offensive limitations during his 22 games with Prince George recording one goal and 11 assists. This past season, Samson experienced a significant improvement in his offensive production, registering 15 goals and 28 assists. The Cougars’ assistant captain ranked second among the team’s blueliners in points, falling just two behind Hudson Thorton. Questions still surround a successful transition to the professional game, but Samson could help alleviates some of those concerns with a strong 19-year-old season with Prince George. John Gove
