Round Three, Pick Sixty-Five: W Samuel Fagemo

The Flyers need more speed added to their pipeline and winger Samuel Fagemo brings that and then some. He uses his quickness to blow by the opposition and dodge body checks, as this assist shows but also has a spectacular offensive skill set to go along with that speed.

Those talents were on full display in the Swedish Hockey League this past season. Fagemo posted 25 points (14 Goals, 11 Assists) in 42 games with the Frölunda Hockey Club, which sat sixth on the entire team in scoring. Keep in mind that he’s only 19-years-old and more than holding his own in a league amongst men. That speaks to just how gifted he is in the offensive zone, also showing the physical maturity he possesses for a player of his age.

Fagemo is one of the older prospects in this draft, though, due to going undrafted in 2018. This went as a surprise to many, but it didn’t keep the versatile forward down. He used it as motivation, re-entered the draft process, and made sure he’d get chosen this time around with his play on the ice.

While he does need to work on making smarter plays at times, I think Fagemo would be an absolute steal for the Flyers in the third round. He’s already shining against SHL talent and could even force his way onto the NHL roster sooner rather than later if he can work the kinks out of his game.
