Insight: Samuelsson dealt with a tender groin during training camp week but was healthy enough to play Detroit's first two games this season. He hasn't played since. He scored 30 goals for Vancvouver back in 2009, but these days is stuck on the Red Wings' third line and probably won't reach 10 goals in this shortened season.

Description: The Red Wings held forward Mikael Samuelsson out of Monday's practice to protect a tender groin. SOURCE: Detroit Free Press
Insight: Samuelsson is expected to skate on the second line for Detroit after being signed in the offseason. He played with Vancouver and Florida last season and scored 31 points (14 G, 17 A) in 54 games. The one-time 30-goal scorer could challenge the 20-point plateau this season if he can stay healthy.

Description: The Florida Panthers have acquired forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm from the Vancouver Canucks for forwards David Booth, Steve Reinprecht, and a third-round pick in 2013. TSN
Insight: The trade is a curious one for Florida, as both forwards are recovering from offseason surgery. They both have the potential to be top-6 forwards in Florida, but because of the injuries both forwards seem to be past their prime.
 
5/19/2011 2:36:00 PM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson underwent abductor tendon/sports hernia surgery and will be out of the Canucks' lineup indefinitely. Vancouver Province
Insight: Expect Samuelsson to miss the remainder of the playoffs, even if the Canucks make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. Samuelsson had just three points (1g-2a) in 11 playoff games, so he was clearly playing while hurt.
 
5/18/2011 3:03:00 PM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson will not play in Game 2 against San Jose on Wednesday and will not travel to San Jose for Games 3 and 4. TSN
Insight: Rumors are that Samuelsson may require season-ending surgery on a lower-body injury. Don't add him in any playoff pools at this point, as it sounds like he won't be returning to the Canucks' lineup during the playoffs.
 
5/13/2011 4:48:00 PM
Description: Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said that Mikael Samuelsson is unlikely to play in Game 1 against San Jose on Sunday. Sportsnet
Insight: Samuelsson missed Game 6 against Nashville with a lower-body injury. The Canucks have provided very little information about Samuelsson's condition, so it's anyone's guess when he'll return.
 
5/8/2011 12:13:00 AM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson will not travel with the Canucks for Game 6 against Nashville after he left Game 5 with a lower-body injury. TSN
Insight: Samuelsson has been ineffective during the postseason with just three points in 11 games and just one point in his last nine games. Before he left Saturday's game, Samuelsson seemed to be battling through some kind of injury already, while has likely been the reason for his disappearance during the playoffs.
 
4/17/2011 11:01:00 PM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson scored the game-winning goal in the third period of the Canucks' 3-2 win over Chicago in Game 3 on Sunday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Samuelsson returned to the Canucks' lineup after missing Game 2 with the flu. Expect him to remain on one of the Canucks' top two lines, as they will rely on him heavily as they venture deeper into the playoffs.
 
4/17/2011 1:46:00 PM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson and Raffi Torres will both return to the Canucks' lineup for Game 3 against Chicago on Sunday. TSN
Insight: Cody Hodgson and Aaron Rome are both expected to be healthy scratches for Game 3 in order to make room for the two returning forwards. Samuelsson missed Game 2 with the flu, while Torres has now served his four-game suspension.
 
4/16/2011 12:37:00 PM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson did not play in Game 2 against Chicago on Friday because of the flu. Canadian Press
Insight: Defenseman Aaron Rome took Samuelsson's place on the forward lines for Game 2. The Canucks have not been overly descriptive regarding Samuelsson's status, so it remains to be seen whether he suits up for Game 3 on Sunday.
 
4/4/2011 5:45:00 PM
Description: Mikael Samuelsson is expected to return to the Canucks' lineup on Tuesday against Edmonton. TSN
