Emerson Etem will make his Vancouver debut Monday night versus Florida.

He is projected to skate alongside Jake Virtanen and Linden Vey, who he played with for two seasons in the WHL with Medicine Hat.

Emerson Etem and Jared McCann will both be scratched from Saturday's match with Tampa Bay.

Unfortunately there isn't much fantasy value between either player. Etem is a career fouth liner, while McCann, still just a ten, has struggled to make an impression on the stat sheet.

There is plenty of hope for the career of Emerson Etem in Vancouver.

The winger floundered in New York with the Rangers and was dealt to the Canucks on Friday. He will be reunited with his junior coach Willie Desjardins and he also spun some magic his final year of junior with Hunter Shinkaruk, who is also in the Canucks chain. Etem will look to redeem himself in Vancouver and he is worth taking a chance on at this time in deeper drafts.
Jan 9 - 10:46 AM

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Emerson Etem from the New York Rangers in exchange for Nicklas Jensen and a 2017 sixth round pick.

This is a case of teams swapping former first rounders that haven't lived up to expectations. Etem specifically is certainly well traveled, having been drafted by the Anaheim Ducks with a pick they acquired from Philadelphia in the Chris Pronger trade. The Ducks shipped Etem to the Rangers in the summer of 2015 in a deal that also involved Carl Hagelin, but Etem never meshed well with coach Alain Vigneault's squad. He's got a better shot at finding his game in Vancouver where he'll be reunited with his former WHL coach, Willie Desjardins.

Emerson Etem will head to the minors for a conditioning stint.

That will give Etem a chance to get some work in while the Rangers figure out what to do with him in the long run. He's appeared in just 19 games this season and has averaged 11:04 minutes when he does play. Don't be surprised if this conditioning stint ends with a trade announcement.
Jan 8 - 4:30 PM

Emerson Etem and Dylan McIlrath will both be scratched from Tuesday's match with Dallas.

While Etem has been otherwise ineffective through 19 games this season, McIlrath has at least put together a modicum of value. He's posted 34 PIMs and 43 blocks across 17 games.

Emerson Etem will probably spend Tuesday's game in the press box.

That's despite the fact that Chris Kreider is doubtful with a hand injury. This would be the second time in the Rangers' last four games that Etem has been listed as a healthy scratch.
Jan 5 - 5:39 AM

Alain Vigneault announced that forward Emerson Etem and defenseman Dylan McIlrath will be scratches on Monday night.

With only three points in 17 games, Etem is off the fantasy radar.

Emerson Etem (illness) skated on Thursday but it doesn't look like he'll suit up in Thursday's game against Colorado.

Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said he liked what he saw from Tanner Glass, Oscar Lindberg and J.T. Miller on Wednesday, so he doesn't want to make any changes up front. Etem has two assists in 10 games this season.

Emerson Etem and Dylan McIlrath will both be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Etem has two assists in seven games this season, but has served as a healthy scratch more often than not. McIlrath is a former first round pick, who's suited up in just four games this season.
