From the Penguins:
The Pittsburgh Penguins signed draft pick defenseman Philip Samuelsson to a three-year entry level contract, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Samuelsson, the son of former Penguin and two-time Stanley Cup-winning defenseman Ulf Samuelsson, was Pittsburgh’s second-round pick (61st overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Samuelsson has played the past two years with Boston College of Hockey East, winning the NCAA National title with the Eagles in 2009-10 as a freshman. That season, Samuelsson notched 14 points (1G-13A) and a plus-15 in 42 contests. The 6-foot-3, 198-pound blueliner completed his sophomore campaign this year with four goals, 16 points and a plus-17 rating in 39 games. Samuelsson was invited to the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp for the 2011 competition in Buffalo, N.Y. Samuelsson played one season with Chicago of the United States Hockey League in 2008-09, racking up 22 assists in 54 games.
