All Henrik Samuelsson

from John Cullen of Shnarped,

This week, John chats with Henrik Samuelsson, one of the stars for the Edmonton Oil Kings during their run to the Memorial Cup last season, and one of the prospects considered to have a very good chance to make the Arizona Coyotes this fall. Henrik is both a native of Arizona(he was born in Pittsburgh but grew up in Scottsdale) and the son of former NHLer Ulf Samuelsson. He also grows a playoff beard that makes him look like a Viking.

How would your most hated opponent on the ice describe you as a player?

HS: I think most of my opponents would probably describe me as a nice, caring guy. I’m never really trying to hurt anyone out there.

JC: (laughs) You’re not serious.

HS: (laughs) No, I’m being incredibly sarcastic. I’m pretty sure if you ask anyone that’s played me, they’ll call me any name they can think of, say that they hate me, stuff like that. I’m pretty chippy out there, I have some moves.

JC: Is that something that’s genetic? I feel like your dad pissed some players off out there.

HS: I don’t know, but my dad was a chippy player, my older brother is a chippy player, so maybe that’s it. I just love pissing people off out there, it’s fun to get other players off of their game.

much more and not your same old interview...
