While Dylan Strome is pushing well beyond what you’d expect from a prospect, it looks like Henrik Samuelsson (pictured) is still struggling to make his mark.

Henrik and Philip Samuelsson joined Derek Smith and Jordan Szwarz as four players demoted to the Arizona Coyotes’ AHL affiliate in Springfield.

Meanwhile, Corey Potter couldn’t make the cut either, so he was released from his PTO.

The team’s training camp roster is now down to 26 players.

Again, Strome is really turning heads despite just coming out of the 2015 Draft in June.

Really, the Coyotes have plenty of reasons to give Strome a shot, even if their best chances seem geared toward the future.

Henrik Samuelsson, 21 and the 27th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, couldn’t manage to be part of the Coyotes’ present.
