Samuelsson Enjoying A Career Year In Vancouver

from Matthew Sekeres of the Globe and Mail,

A career season, and making good on a giant middle finger.

The Vancouver Canucks forward is skating with countrymen Daniel and Henrik Sedin on the NHL team’s top line and showing Sweden’s hockey establishment what it was missing at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Samuelsson was perhaps the most glaring Olympic snub – in his home city, no less – yet has responded with 20 of his career-high 30 goals since being bypassed for the likes of Mattias Weinhandl and Fredrik Modin when Sweden’s team was selected in late December.
