He appeared in 19 games last season, posting a 13-4-1 mark with a goals against average of 2.69 and a .902 save percentage.
Samsonov is a veteran of 48 NHL games over three seasons.
Internationally, Samsonov has represented Russia on a number of occasions, including at back-to-back IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships in 2016 and 2017, winning a silver and bronze medal, respectively.
