Yang “Sam” Hu @sammyhu_ -
1. Sammy is a talented Chinese forward from Guangzhou, China.
2. He spent his junior career in Canada. Sam played 4 seasons in the @ojhlofficial from 2013-17, with the highlight being leading the @canesojhl in scoring in 2014-15 (43 points in 52 games) and being named the league’s Scholastic Player of the Year, as he maintained a 92% average over four years of high school, while also competing in hockey and rugby, where he was part of a York Region championship club.
3. In 2017, Sammy moved to China to play for the @krschina organization, where he was a consistent offensive force. Notably, in 2019-20, he captained the @krs_bsu_vhl team and led them in scoring with 29 points in 54 games.
4. This season, Sammy played in the @khl for the Red Star, recording 2 points with limited ice time. However, he was released by the team after 20 games.
5. Sammy was the victim of an unfortunate incident this season when he was involved in an altercation with Stas Petrosyan, who made a “slant eyes” gesture toward Sammy. For what it’s worth, Petrosyan made a public apology after the game.
Sammy has recently signed with @mshockeyelite in Norway! Good luck to Sammy!
