Northwood Prep 2000-born defenseman Matthias Samuelsson announced via Twitter that he has committed to play hockey at the University of Michigan:
I am proud to announce my D1 commitment to play college hockey at the University of Michigan #GoWolverines #GoBlue— Mattias Samuelsson (@M__Samuelsson) April 13, 2015
Samuelsson is the son former NHL defenseman and Philadelphia Flyer player development coach Kjell Samuelsson.
Kjell Samuelsson was one of the tallest players in the NHL, listed at 6'7", and his son seems to have inherited that height, already measuring at 6'2" as a 14-year-old.
He is the second 2000-born player to commit to Michigan, joining Blade Jenkins. He also joins current Wolverines commits Quinn Hughes and Griffen Luce in having a father working in the front office of an NHL organization.
