Samuelsson has skated in three contests this season for Arizona.
Samuelsson was recalled from AHL Springfield on Sunday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Samuelsson will provide some depth along the blue line with both Stefan Elliott and Nicklas Grossman dealing with injuries that could force them out of the lineup Monday. If that's the case, Samuelsson would be in line to draw into the lineup against the Ducks. However, it seems likely that his run with the Coyotes will be a short one.
