Samuel Fagemo was drafted by the LA Kings 50th overall in the 2019 NHL Draft.
Having gone undrafted in 2018, Fagemo spent the past year developing his game to ensure he wouldn't be passed on again.
"I'm super excited to come to a great club right now and get things started," Fagemo said after being selected by the Kings.
He models his game after Filip Forsberg and Alex Ovechkin, both who are impressive when it comes to taking the puck to the net and scoring goals.
Over the next year, while Fagemo finishes out his contract with Frölunda HC, he hopes to strengthen the desensive side of his game.
"Stay focused on my defensive zone for 60 minutes. [The NHL] is such a great league, so you need to be good in the defense and offense. I think my defensive play I need to develop more."
Though he wants to develop his defensive game further, Fagemo's offensive touch is strong. He showcased that with the numbers he put up this year, which were higher than any other player his age in the SHL, contributing to his team winning the National Championship.
