The Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday returned 2012 first-round pick Henrik Samuelsson to his junior team, the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.

Samuelsson, a right wing selected with the 27th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, had 33 goals and 80 points in 69 WHL games last season, and then had 11 goals and 19 points in 22 WHL playoff games.
