After day one of the LA Kings development camp, winger Samuel Fagemo spoke to the media about his debut and how he has improved so far.
Although it was written by the Kings of Los Angeles in 2019, winger Samuel Fagemo only played in North America earlier this year. For the native of Goteborg, Sweden, it’s better late than never. However, there is still room for improvement, and this week’s development was certainly a good start.
After the first day of the Kings development camp, Fagemo spoke to the media about how his first day went, but also what he worked on during the offseason and what he carried over from last season.
“I think it’s a lot of things,” Fagemo said. “To come [my] freshman here in LA and stuff like that, it’s really fun. And I think the biggest thing for me [is] to play [on] the smallest ice rink. It goes so much faster, so you can also shoot the puck more. So I think [those] two things: come in this year to just play the puck at a high pace and shoot the puck as fast as you can.
After starting the 2020-21 season with Södertälje SK in his native Sweden, Fagemo traveled to Ontario, where he adapted for the Reign. Scoring six goals and five assists in 18 games for Södertälje SK, Fagemo joined Reign without missing a beat. In 32 games with the Kings AHL affiliate, the 21-year-old has scored 10 goals and added eight assists. Not bad for a first go-around on this side of the Atlantic.
