Ulf Samuelsson coach for Modo

He has been ass. coach in Phoenix for 5 years and will now be head coach for Modo:

http://www.dn.se/sport/ishockey/ulf-...tranare-i-modo

The article further states that his son Henrik will move with him and play for Modo.


It seems that Modo has adopted the idea that former NHL players are the way to go with the staff, having Näslund (GM) and Forsberg (ass. GM) at the helm.

Thread I made about it on the Phoenix board earlier.

I'll just repeat what I said there and say that I find this move pretty surprising, Samuelsson seemed like someone who has become very Americanised, he has lived there for 25 years, naturalised as a US citizen, his kids play for Team USA etc.

Really did not expect a guy like him to move back to Sweden, particularly not to a place that he has no previous links to. Must have really wanted to get a head coaching job I suppose.

It's been official for quite some time now, but here's a new article from NHL.com about Samuelsson coaching MoDo.

If any of you watched Brynas this year can you tell me who you feel will be better Silfverberg or Rodin?

I guess Samuelsson and Modo have one thing in their favor with the drastic roster overhaul... money. It will take some time to get the players in that the Modo new brain-trust want. Seems they want players (most notably Swedes I assume) from the NHL/AHL that are use to the style of play Samuelsson wants to play (aggressive and fast).

As far as know, Henrik Samuelsson is going to move with him and play for Modos junior team. That's nice, since he seems like one of the topprospect for next years draft (to bad he choosed to play for USA though ).
