Emerson Etem has been assigned to AHL San Diego.

Etem last played in the minors two seasons ago and he posted 21 points in 22 games for Norfolk, then Anaheim's AHL affiliate. He has just 46 points in 173 career NHL games, so it seems safe to say he's not quite ready for the highest level.

Emerson Etem will be in the lineup for Tuesday's match versus New Jersey.

The Anaheim Ducks have claimed Emerson Etem off waivers.

Etem's career has been an interesting journey. He was taken with the 29th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, which is a pick that originally belonged to the Philadelphia Flyers, but was used by Anaheim as part of the Chris Pronger trade. Etem never lived up to his potential in Anaheim though and in the summer of 2015 he was dealt to the Rangers in a trade that also involved Carl Hagelin. The Rangers only held onto him for half a season though before they sent him to Vancouver and now the Canucks have lost him on waivers to the team that originally drafted him. At this point we don't have high hopes for Etem, but he's still just 24 years old so he could still turn his career around.

Emerson Etem has been placed on waivers by Vancouver.

He played in 58 games with the Rangers and Canucks last season. In 39 matches with Vancouver, he had seven goals and 12 points.

With two preseason games left in Vancouver's schedule, Emerson Etem still has something to prove.

Etem agreed to a one-year, $775,000 deal with Vancouver in June, but there's a lot of competition in Vancouver for those final forward spots and Etem might end up getting squeezed out. Etem left something to be desired on Monday and while that's understandable given that Etem had only recently become a father, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins didn't feel like he could cut the forward any slack. "Probably not," Desjardins said. "I think it’s tough. There’s too many guys that are fighting for spots and everybody knows that. That’s just what we brought into camp. I feel for the guy, but we have to find the best guys. And I’m not saying he’s not, but we have to find the best guys."
