Recruiting: Mattias Samuelsson flips to Western Michigan

By @MichaelCaples –

USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program defenseman Mattias Samuelsson was a Wolverines commitment.

Now he says he’s going to be a Bronco.

The Under-18 Team blueliner just tweeted that he will be joining his older brother Luke at Western Michigan.

Rated an ‘A’ skater by NHL Central Scouting for their 2018 Draft projections, Samuelsson is one of the top defensemen in his age group. This season, he has recorded 13 points in 28 games with the NTDP.
