The Edmonton Oilers have acquired forward Henrik Samuelsson from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Mitchell Moroz. 

Samuelsson, 22, was a first round draft pick of the Coyotes, 27th overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft. The native of Pittsburgh, PA has appeared in three NHL games with Arizona.

This season with the American Hockey League's Tucson Roadrunners, the 6'3, 209 lbs forward has three points (2G, 1A) in 20 games. Over three seasons, Samuelsson has appeared in 131 AHL games, registering 55 points (23G, 32A) and 102 penalty minutes.

Samuelsson helped the Western Hockey League's Edmonton Oil Kings capture the Memorial Cup in 2013-14, where he led the tournament in scoring with eight points (4G, 4A) in five games, and was named to the tournament all-star team. Samuelsson played a full season in the U.S. National Team Development Program, winning gold with the U.S. at the 2011 IIHF World Men's U18 Hockey Championship in Germany. 

He is the son of former NHL defenceman Ulf, and the brother of Montreal Canadiens prospect Philip.

Samuelsson and Moroz were teammates with the WHL's Oil Kings in Edmonton for three seasons (2011-14), winning the Memorial Cup together in 2014.
