Head Coach Bryan Erikson and General Manager Matt Dibble always are on the lookout for players who play a tough game. The best Generals, like Colin Bilek and Kohei Sato come to the rink every day and get better on the ice while being great teammates. Erikson has found a Swedish winger that has come on to the scene strong this year.
Jacob Samuelsson has fit that mold. The Swedish winger has put up over a point-per-game so far and looks to help the Generals next season. Erikson said “Jacob is a very skilled player that has put up a ton of points in a very good Swedish league. He plays very fast and is creative with the puck on his stick. Although on the smaller side Jacob doesn’t shy away from the dirty areas. We think he will be a huge addition to our team for next year. He is a great kid that puts in the work to get better.”
