Drafted: HFD / 1982 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 4th (67th overall)
Regarded by many in the NHL as one of the hardest hitters the league has seen and a defenceman who gets the job done, Ulf Samuelsson was drafted out of Sweden as the Hartford Whalers 4th choice, 67th overall, in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft.

Samuelsson started his NHL career with the Whalers in the 1984-85 season and stayed with Hartford until being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins along with Ron Francis during the Pens' 1990-91 drive for the Cup. He would hoist the Stanley Cup this season and the next as the Penguins celebrated their first two championships.

The 1992-93 season was Samuelsson's most productive one in the penalty box as he racked up a career high 249 penalty minutes. He was traded once again in 1995, this time to the New York Rangers, where he played until being traded to the Detroit Red Wings in 1999.

On the international stage Samuelsson represented his homeland on numerous occasions, including three times at the World Junior Championships in 1982, 1983 and 1984, twice at the World European Championships in 1985 and 1990 and the 1991 Canada Cup. In 1998, Samuelsson was chosen to reprsent Sweden at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano Japan.

After 17 seasons in the NHL, Samuelsson retired at the end of the 1999-2000 season. Throughout his playing career, Samuelsson played in over 1,000 games and finished with 332 points and 2,453 penalty minutes, reflecting his style of play as both a fierce competitor and a fearsome defenceman.
