Philip Samuelsson(5) WBS Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins‘ 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft (#61 overall) defenseman Philip Samuelsson(5) played only a couple years of college hockey before turning pro. Signed to a 3-year two-way entry level deal, he started the season in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with their AHL affiliate.

In 33 games with the Baby Pens he has 1 goal and 7 assists, while going a +6 plus/minus.

His dad is former Stanley Cup Champion defenseman, Ulf Sammuelsson. At 20 years old he’s already fairly big like his father at 6’3″ 198 lbs. He’s also considered a stay at home defenseman, much like his dad’s rep was during his playing career.
