Player Evaluation: Emerson Etem – June 30th, 2011

RW Emerson Etem shoots on G Iiro Tarkki.

When right winger Emerson Etem was drafted in the 1st round of 2010 NHL Entry Draft (29th overall), the most frequent description of the right winger was that he was fast.  When he showed up to camp that year, he showed Anaheim why.  This year, he has done what seemed impossible and has gotten even faster.

Last year Etem showed potential, but also looked like he had a ways to go before making it to the NHL.  His speed was astonishing.  When he got the puck in open ice, he was gone.  However, he had trouble getting past the tight-checking NHL defensemen he faced in the preseason.  As a result he took more than a few punishing hits, though he got up from each one no worse for wear.

After being sent back to the Medicine Hat Tigers in the CHL, Etem set his mind on improving his physical game.  He finished more of his checks, played more in the dirty areas in front of the net, and even ended the season with his first fight. (more…)
