Samuelsson Continues Rangers' Poor Luck (574 words)
It was personified by the case of Rangers defenseman Ulf Samuelsson, who was banned from the hockey tournament after three games for his native Sweden because he also holds a U.S. passport.

Hockey Digest: Ulf Samuelsson: the fearsome defender recalls the night the Penguins' bid for a third straight Stanley ... (1595 words)
Samuelsson concedes he was always "on the edge." He has some remorse about the Neely hit, but he has always contended that it wasn't a dirty hit since Neely turned at the last moment.
Samuelsson wasn't blessed with Mario Lemieux-like skills, so it's a testament to his will and determination that he was the guy often tabbed to take on the likes of Lemieux, Gretzky, and Jagr.
Samuelsson built a cult following in Hartford, where he was drafted in the fourth round of the 1982 draft.
