Updates

  • October 28, 2016

    Update:Etem was sent down to AHL San Diego on Thursday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:Etem has been something of a fill-in player for the Ducks this season as he's averaged only 8:48 of ice time in three games since coming over from Vancouver. He'll be worth monitoring for the rest of the season if you're a Ducks fan, but probably won't materialize into anything fantasy worthy.

  • October 26, 2016

    Update:Despite being waived by Anaheim Wednesday morning, Etem is in the Ducks' lineup for the evening's game against Nashville.
    Analysis:Ryan Getzlaf (forearm) was considered a game-time decision for Anaheim's matchup with the Predators, so the Ducks likely kept Etem around as an insurance policy in case Getzlaf couldn't go. The Ducks' captain was ultimately held out of Wednesday's contest with a forearm injury, giving Etem the opportunity to draw into his third game of the season with Anaheim. If Etem goes unclaimed, he'll likely be sent to the Ducks' AHL affiliate once Getzlaf or Rickard Rakell (personal) is cleared to return to game action.

  • Update:Etem was waived for the second time this season Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
    Analysis:Waiving Etem could be a sign that Rickard Rakell's visa issues have been resolved. Etem played in just two of the Ducks' first seven games this year, averaging 6:01 of ice time, so he was clearly a temporary fill-in on Anaheim's roster. If he goes unclaimed, the team will assign him to AHL San Diego.

  • October 16, 2016

    Update:Etem is a healthy scratch Sunday against the Islanders.
    Analysis:The California native was claimed off waivers from Vancouver on Thursday and was immediately added to the Ducks' 23-man roster. Etem posted 15 points in 58 games last season as a member of the Rangers and Canucks after spending the first three years of his career with Anaheim, but it's unclear when he'll get a shot to put the Ducks jersey back on in his second stint with the team.

  • October 13, 2016

    Update:Etem was claimed off waivers by Anaheim on Thursday and is listed on their 23-man roster, Helene Elliott of Los Angeles Times reports.
    Analysis:Etem was waived by Vancouver on Tuesday after a dismal 2015-16 that saw the California native record just 15 points across 58 games split between the Rangers and Canucks. It's unclear as to when he'll join the team, but he's currently listed on the Ducks' 23-man roster, indicating they don't plan on sending Etem directly to the AHL. The 24-year-old was Anaheim's first round pick in 2010 and he spent the first three years of his career in the Ducks' organization, so he'll be heading back to familiar digs in Orange County.

  • October 11, 2016

    Update:Etem was placed on waivers by the Canucks on Tuesday.
    Analysis:Even had Etem earned a spot on the roster, his playing time would have been limited and his skill set really only translates to leagues that include hits (87 in 58 games last season) as a stat. He did fling an even 100 shots on net over that span as well but managed to convert that into just seven goals. He's likely bound to be a fringe NHL player in 2015-16 with the Canucks.

  • June 27, 2016

    Update:Etem signed a one-year contract extension with the Canucks on Monday.
    Analysis:Etem saw an increase in production after the Rangers traded him to the Canucks in January. He scored seven goals and had five assists in 39 games with Vancouver. The former first round pick will look to continue to improve as a Canuck, but the 24-year-old winger will have minimal fantasy value until he finds more consistency.

  • April 2, 2016

    Update:Etem scored the game-winning goal late in the third period Friday against Anaheim.
    Analysis:This was a clutch goal for Etem against his former team, giving him four tallies on the season. The 25-year-old has managed just eight points in 35 games with Vancouver this season, so don't expect a huge finish to the year. The third-liner has been too inconsistent to be trusted in anything but the deepest of leagues.

  • February 26, 2016

    Update:Etem notched two goals on four shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Senators.
    Analysis:That's three points in two games for Etem, who is still trying to find a place with his new team up in Vancouver. In 17 games played with the Canucks, he's recorded three goals and two assists, as compared to just three assists tallied in 19 games with the Rangers earlier this season. Those with a spot to fill in the deepest of leagues can keep an eye on the 23-year-old in case this was the game that allowed him to turn the corner and start producing on a semi-regular basis.

  • January 19, 2016

    Update:Etem scored an assist, his first as a Canuck, in a 3-2 overtime loss Tuesday.
    Analysis:The assist came against Etem's former team, the Rangers, which caps off a night in which he played 15:51, the most in five games with Vancouver. United with former WHL Medicine Hat team mate Linden Vey, Etem seems to have found a comfort zone in Vancouver, something that eluded him in New York. Given Vancouver's injuries and the team's mandate to get younger, Etem should remain a fixture in the Canucks lineup. He's a medium-upside player who's worth picking up if he gets hot, but his potential may not come to fruition this season.

  • January 8, 2016

    Update:Etem was traded from the Rangers to the Canucks on Friday.
    Analysis:Etem drew into 19 games with the Rangers this season, but recorded just three assists over that frame and failed to find the net. He'll now move to the Canucks in exchange for Nicklas Jensen in a sixth round pick, and perhaps a change of scenery will provide the former first-round pick the jump-start he needs.

  • Update:Etem will be sent down to AHL Hartford for a conditioning stint Friday.
    Analysis:Head coach Alain Vigneault indicated that Etem wouldn't have cracked the Rangers' lineup at any point this weekend, so he will be sent down to play three games in Hartford. The former first-round pick has been an enormous disappointment in New York, scoring just three points (all assists) in 19 contests.

  • January 3, 2016

    Update:Etem has three points (all assists) in 19 games played this season.
    Analysis:With Kevin Hayes currently in hot water with head coach Alain Vigneault, Etem (minus-4) has been seeing more consistent ice time with the team's third line. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old has been held off the scorer's sheet for five straight contests. While the young forward has promise, he just hasn't shown any during game action, leaving him completely irrelevant to fantasy owners in any format.

  • December 3, 2015

    Update:Etem will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against Colorado, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
    Analysis:Etem didn't play Wednesday against the Islanders due to illness, but returned to practice Thursday, and has reportedly fully recovered from the ailment. However, he won't draw back into the Rangers' lineup for Thursday's contest, as head coach Alain Vigneault will opt to stick with Tanner Glass instead. Etem's next opportunity to return to New York's lineup will come Sunday against the Senators.

  • December 2, 2015

    Update:Etem will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Islanders due to an undisclosed illness, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
    Analysis:Etem has just two assists in 10 games for the Rangers this season while averaging less than 12 minutes of ice time. The Rangers recalled Tanner Glass to fill his roster spot Wednesday.

  • November 27, 2015

    Update:Etem will be in the lineup against the Bruins on Friday afternoon.
    Analysis:The Rangers often deploy Etem when they need a speedster in the lineup. With the Blueshirts facing a tough offensive foe in the Bruins on Friday, they'll look to take advantage of that breakaway speed, even though Etem is likely bound for bottom-six minutes.

  • November 10, 2015

    Update:Etem picked up an assist, but played a team-low 9:31 in Tuesday's win over the Hurricanes.
    Analysis:The young winger has suited up in three straight games after sitting out nine of the first 12, but he's still skating very limited minutes, which prevents him from making a big impact. Etem does still have long-term upside, though, and he's in a good place to learn how to play winning hockey without being overexposed.

  • October 25, 2015

    Update:Etem logged his first assist of the season in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Flames.
    Analysis:Obviously, with just two under his belt with the team, that's the first point of his Rangers career as well. With Viktor Stalberg (upper body) sitting Etem cracked the lineup for the second time in a week. While the young winger has some promise, he would have to really turn heads before he'll earn anything other than fourth line minutes. Watch from a distance fantasy owners.

  • October 15, 2015

    Update:Etem will make his Rangers debut on the fourth line Thursday night against the Canadiens, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
    Analysis:Etem came to the Blueshirts via an offseason trade with the Ducks, while Carl Hagelin landed in Anaheim. His insertion on the fourth line will limit his offensive opportunities.

  • October 14, 2015

    Update:Etem was observed alternating with Jarret Stoll at Wednesday's practice reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
    Analysis:Acquired for Carl Hagelin in the off-season, head coach Alain Vigneault is clearly trying to find a way to get Etem into the line-up for his season/team debut. With five players (including Tanner Glass, Jesper Fast, Dominic Moore) vying for three spots, there's no telling when this game of musical chairs will end. The only certainty is minimal ice time leaves Etem and his four co-workers irrelevant to standard fantasy formats.

  • October 2, 2015

    Update:Etem will begin the season as an extra forward, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
    Analysis:Acquired for Carl Hagelin from Anaheim this offseason, Etem will begin the season as depth on the team's NHL roster rather than at Hartford of the AHL. Although the team is actively seeking trades that could possibly impact the 23-year-old winger's playing time, for now it appears he'll begin the season watching from the press box. Through parts of three seasons with the Ducks, Etem logged 15 goals and 31 points in 112 games.

  • September 10, 2015

    Update:Etem will be competing for a third- or fourth-line role during his first training camp with the Rangers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
    Analysis:The Rangers have a void on the third line after speedy winger Carl Hagelin was dealt to the Ducks, and Etem -- the player the Blueshirts acquired in return for Hagelin -- may be ready to serve as cheaper, but promising replacement. Like Hagelin, Etem can tear it up on the ice, but he's yet to notice much success at the NHL level, producing only 15 goals and 31 points in 112 career games. Viktor Stalberg will be Etem's primary competition for that role, with the loser of the job battle likely to settle in on the fourth line or open the season at AHL Hartford.

  • July 14, 2015

    Update:Etem signed a one-year, $850,500 contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
    Analysis:Etem will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Rangers at the start of the upcoming season. The 23-year-old winger tallied a total of ten points in 45 games with Anaheim in 2014-15.

  • June 27, 2015

    Update:Etem was traded to the Rangers on Saturday in a deal that sent Carl Hagelin to the Ducks, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
    Analysis:Picks were also involved. The deal was fueled by financial considerations for the Rangers; Etem, who is coming out of an entry-level deal, will be much cheaper than Hagelin. Etem is a speed demon who could be a great complement to fellow fast skaters Chris Kreider and Derick Brassard.

  • May 25, 2015

    Update:Etem isn't on the ice for pregame warmups and looks to be a healthy scratch for Monday's Game 5 against the Blackhawks, Mark Divver of the Providence Journal reports.
    Analysis:Despite scoring a goal in Saturday's Game 4, Etem will surprisingly find himself in the press box, as coach Bruce Boudreau decides to go with the veteran Tomas Fleischmann. The fourth-line arrangement looks to be a very fluid situation for the Ducks, so it's quite possible that Fleischmann and Etem could have their roles flip-flopped for Game 6.

  • May 24, 2015

    Update:Etem cleaned up a Francois Beauchemin shot attempt to score the Ducks' first goal of the match in an eventual 5-4 double-overtime loss to the Blackhawks in Saturday's Game 4.
    Analysis:Etem now has three goals in the postseason, despite missing two games of the previous series against Calgary as a healthy scratch. It appears coach Bruce Boudreau values Etem's energy more than Tomas Fleischmann's experience at this stage in the playoffs, so don't expect a switch to be made for Game 5.

  • May 8, 2015

    Update:Etem will be replaced by Tomas Fleischmann in the lineup for Friday's Game 4 in Calgary, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
    Analysis:Fleischmann will join the lineup for the first time all series, while Etem will be a healthy scratch for the first time this postseason. Etem has two goals and no assists through Anaheim's first seven playoff games.

  • May 1, 2015

    Update:Etem notched a goal in Thursday's Game 1 beatdown of the Flames.
    Analysis:Etem put back a rebound of a Francois Beauchemin shot attempt to give him his second goal in as many playoff games. His hold on a lineup spot seemed a bit tenuous heading into the postseason, but his recent uptick in production should continue to earn him a regular role ahead of Jiri Sekac and Tomas Fleischmann on the Ducks' fourth line.

  • April 23, 2015

    Update:Etem scored his first goal of the postseason in Anaheim's series-clinching win Wednesday in Winnipeg.
    Analysis:Etem scored on a backhand after some brilliant stick handling in the offensive zone. This was Etem's first point of the postseason; unfortunately, he's barely averaging 10 minutes a night so far, so he probably won't see too many scoring opportunities in the upcoming contests.

  • March 10, 2015

    Update:Etem scored the tying goal midway through the third against the Canucks on Monday.
    Analysis:It's only Etem's third goal and fourth point since being called up to the big club in mid-February. He was also the low man in ice time for the Ducks on Monday night, so consider Etem a poor waiver wire option at this point in time.

  • February 16, 2015

    Update:Etem was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Monday.
    Analysis:Etem's promotion could signal at least a brief absence for Matt Beleskey after the winger left Sunday's game with an upper body injury. In 27 games with the NHL club this season, the 22-year-old has six points and a minus-4 rating.

  • January 2, 2015

    Update:Etem was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Friday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:With the Ducks needing to clear a roster spot for Kyle Palmieri's return from injured reserve, Etem was the most logical choice as a winger on a two-way deal. Etem hasn't made much of an impact over his 27 games with Anaheim this season, netting two goals and four assists.

  • December 17, 2014

    Update:Etem was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:With Kyle Palmieri out indefinitely after suffering a shoulder injury Tuesday night, Etem will rejoin the Ducks for a second stint. He tallied just four points in 21 games the first time around, so expectations should probably be tempered, despite the 22-year-old's offensive gifts. He skated on the second line with Ryan Kesler and Matt Beleskey at Wednesday's practice.

  • November 24, 2014

    Update:Etem was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Monday.
    Analysis:Etem has made 88 appearances for Anaheim throughout his career, but he'll head down to the AHL and work on improving his game nonetheless. When considering that he has considerable NHL experience at just 22-years-old, he'll likely be called back to Anaheim at some later point in the season.

  • November 17, 2014

    Update:Etem registered a pair of assists in Sunday's blowout loss to the Panthers.
    Analysis:Etem has been a disappointment this season, managing only four points (two goals) in 19 games. Although he did score in Saturday's game, Etem is currently seeing very little ice time on the third line, limiting his fantasy value. The 22-year-old has potential, but he needs to start showing some consistency before he's worth looking at.

  • November 16, 2014

    Update:Etem netted his second goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
    Analysis:Etem has been seeing increased ice time next to Ryan Getzlaf on the top line while Corey Perry has missed time with the mumps virus, but save for Saturday's goal, he hasn't noticed much of a spike in his production. With Perry expected to return to the lineup perhaps as soon as Sunday, it appears Etem will settle back into a third- or fourth-line role in the near future.

  • October 7, 2014

    Update:Etem looks set to open the season on the Ducks' 23-man roster.
    Analysis:Where Etem will play remains in flux after Dany Heatley and Kyle Palmieri were placed on injured reserve, but the 22-year-old has certainly made a strong bid for Heatley's role on the top line. In six preseason contests, Etem accumulated two goals on 18 shots, while seeing time on both the power play and penalty kill. If he continues to supply his physicality and scoring touch in the first few games of the regular season, Etem may never have to return to AHL Norfolk.

  • May 8, 2014

    Update:Etem was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Thursday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:Etem played in each of the first two games of the series with the Kings, failing to score any points but attempting four shots on goal and supplying four hits. Coach Bruce Boudreau evidently wasn't considering using Etem in their Game 3 lineup, electing to call up defenseman Sami Vatanen in his stead.

  • April 23, 2014

    Update:Etem will be in the lineup Wednesday against the Stars, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.
    Analysis:Etem will draw into the lineup with the news that Teemu Selanne will be a healthy scratch. Etem recorded seven goals and four assists in 29 games with the Ducks this season.

  • April 20, 2014

    Update:Etem was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Sunday.
    Analysis:He'll give the Ducks some added depth at forward while Matt Beleskey remains sidelined with a lower-body injury. Etem had 11 points in 29 games with the Ducks during the regular season and was averaging over a point-per-contest with Norfolk.

  • March 21, 2014

    Update:Etem was returned to AHL Norfolk on Friday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:Etem logged 10:11 of ice time in Thursday's game and will now head back to Norfolk. He's been productive in the AHL but was never expected to stick with the Ducks for long in this most-recent stint.

  • March 20, 2014

    Update:Etem was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Thursday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:With the Ducks losing Nick Bonino and Cam Fowler to injuries over the last few days, Etem will enter the fold to help Anaheim recoup some of their lost depth. It's uncertain if he'll become a regular in the lineup during this stint with the big club, but even if he does, he's not likely to see big minutes.

  • February 10, 2014

    Update:Etem was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Monday.
    Analysis:The Ducks wanted to ensure that the 21-year-old saw regular activity on the ice during the two-and-a-half week break for the Olympics. Prior to his most recent callup, Etem posted 28 points in 25 contests at Norfolk.

  • February 5, 2014

    Update:The Ducks recalled Etem from AHL Norfolk on Wednesday.
    Analysis:Etem will replace David Steckel, who was reassigned Wednesday, on the active roster. Etem posted six goals and four assists in an earlier 26 game stint with the Ducks. He racked up 11 goals and 17 assists during 25 AHL games as well.

  • December 10, 2013

    Update:Etem was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:With Etem vacillating in and out of the lineup over the last few games, the Ducks decided he would better off at Norfolk, where he'd see more consistent ice time. Etem had just one point in his last eight games prior to his demotion.

  • December 5, 2013

    Update:The Ducks recalled Etem from AHL Norfolk on Thursday, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.
    Analysis:Etem was sent down to Norfolk just shy of two weeks ago, and dominated there during his three game stint, racking up a goal and four assists. He'll return to the Ducks roster where he posted six goals and four assists in 24 games earlier this season.

  • November 27, 2013

    Update:Etem was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Wednesday.
    Analysis:The 21-year-old has been producing, with 10 points (6G, 4A) in 24 games with Anaheim this season, but coach Bruce Boudreau reportedly thinks Etem will benefit from more consistent playing time. Etem has averaged just over 13 minutes per game with the Ducks.

  • November 14, 2013

    Update:Etem scored a goal during the second period of a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Lightning on Thursday.
    Analysis:Etem continues to show promise, with this being the third consecutive game in which he has logged a point.

  • October 11, 2013

    Update:Etem logged 14:52 of ice time in his season debut Thursday against the Rangers.
    Analysis:Etem didn't see much involvement in the Ducks' six-goal barrage, but did register two hits in his 21 shifts. He's not expected to be much of a fantasy contributor in the offensive categories.

  • October 9, 2013

    Update:Etem (lower body) will play Thursday against the Rangers.
    Analysis:Etem will make his 2013-14 debut Thursday, liking skating on the fifth line, after missing the team's first three games with a lower body injury. The 21-year-old put up 10 points (3G, 7A) and a plus-seven rating in 38 games last season.

  • October 8, 2013

    Update:Etem (lower body) believes he'll be ready to return Thursday against the Rangers, the Orange County Register reports.
    Analysis:Coach Bruce Boudreau is less confident that Etem will be activated from IR that quickly, but at any rate, it appears the winger is on the cusp of a return within the next handful of days. He's expected to assume third or fourth-line duty for the Ducks when activated.

  • September 27, 2013

    Update:Coach Bruce Boudreau said following Friday's practice that Etem (lower body) would likely miss Wednesday's season opener against the Avalanche.
    Analysis:Etem suffered what looked to be a leg injury in Friday's exhibition and has been restricted in practices ever since. The news comes as a bit of a damper for Etem, who was bidding for a top-nine spot after a strong performance last postseason.

  • September 23, 2013

    Update:Etem was seen walking gingerly Sunday after suffering an injury Friday against San Jose. He did not play against the Avs on Sunday night, the Los Angeles Times reports.
    Analysis:For now, the injury is a day-to-day ailment, which was the result of a collision with Raffi Torres on Friday night.

  • March 31, 2013

    Update:Etem scored his second NHL goal in the Ducks' 2-1 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets on Sunday.
    Analysis:While it took 19 games for Etem to score his first goal in the NHL, he seems to be now starting to find his rhythm. With this increased productivity, the Ducks are likely to give him more ice time in the near future.

  • March 19, 2013

    Update:Etem scored his first NHL goal in Monday's win over San Jose.
    Analysis:It took 19 games to happen, but the Ducks' promising young forward finally found the back of the net. Etem's ice time is up recently, as he logged 13:39 while carrying a plus-2 rating and adding an assist to his line Monday night as well.
