Samuel Fagemo

Not long after finding Kaliyev, the Kings snagged Samuel Fagemo with the 50th overall pick in last year’s draft. He went undrafted as an 18-year-old but had a solid bounceback year. The 19-year-old winger tallied ten goals with four assists for 14 points in only eight games while logging an absurd 31.3 shot percentage for Frölunda HC J20.

The same year, he scored 14 goals with 11 assists in 42 games for Frölunda HC of the SHL. He signed his three-year entry-level contract a month after being drafted and was loaned to Frölunda this past season, where he scored 13 goals with nine assists.

The past two seasons, he hasn’t been a huge factor in the powerplay, logging two PPG each campaign, but he continues to shoot the puck at nearly a 13 percent clip.

He’s come a long way in a short amount of time and was outstanding for Team Sweden in the World Juniors, tallying eight goals with five assists in only seven games. Fagemo’s scoring totals resemble that of a first-round pick, and he can be a major asset to help with the Kings scoring woes.
