Buzz: Ulf Samuelsson Is Highly Regarded By The Rangers

AP9605030643According to Katie Strang, former Rangers defenseman Ulf Samuelsson filled out the questionnaire that was sent out to head coaching candidates.

Samuelsson, she writes, is highly regarded within the organization and could warrant a spot on the bench with Alain Vigneault.

It was reported yesterday that Samuelsson is a possibility to become an assistant/associate coach with the Rangers.

On the MODO website, as Pat Leonard notes, Samuelsson is no longer listed as the head coach. The head coach is now listed as Anders Forsberg.

In some posts to twitter, it has been noted that Forsberg has been the head coach for at least the last few days, maybe a week,, prior to the report being released.

Samuelsson has previously been an assistant coach with the Wolf Pack under assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld.

Larry Brooks writes in the NY Post that Samuelsson left MODO, moved to Phoenix and is seeking a job in the NHL.
