Sabres agree to sign prospect defenseman Mattias Samuelsson

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Sabres agreed to sign prospect defenseman Mattias Samuelsson to a three-year entry- level contract on Wednesday.

Samuelsson was selected by Buffalo with the 32nd pick in the 2018 draft, and completed his sophomore season at Western Michigan. He is following the career path of his father, former NHL defenseman Kjell Samuelsson, who is currently the Philadelphia Flyers' director of player development.

Mattias Samuelsson served as an alternate captain last season and was an honorable mention for the National Collegiate Hockey Conference defenseman of the year honors. Samuelsson had two goals and 14 points in 30 games last year, and overall has seven goals and 26 points in 65 career college games.
