Emerson Etem has agreed to a contract extension with the New York Rangers.

The terms of the deal haven't been made available. Etem was a restricted free agent coming off of his entry-level deal. The Rangers got him from Anaheim in June as part of a deal involving picks and former Ranger Carl Hagelin. Etem had five goals and 10 points in 45 contests last season. He has a significant amount of offensive upside, but the big question is if he can secure a top-six spot with the Rangers. That's far from a safe bet, but he's nevertheless worth keeping an eye on during training camp.

The New York Rangers traded for Emerson Etem, plus picks 59 and 179 for Carl Hagelin and the 41st pick.

Hagelin might be a little more impressive at this point in his career, but it appears that the Rangers were trying to save a little money in this case. Etem's also an interesting potential-based pickup.

The Anaheim Ducks seem poised to make Emerson Etem a healthy scratch against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 7 of the WCF on Saturday.

The California native is likely to be replaced by Tomas Fleischmann thanks to the latter's edge in experience. Etem, 22, has three goals and zero assists in 12 postseason games. In the five games he's played in this series, he's managed a single goal and 12 SOG. It seems like there's only a marginal box score difference between Etem and Fleischmann, at least at this point in their respective careers.

Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was mulling over a couple of new lines during practice on Friday, which may leave Emerson Etem in the press box for Game 7.

Kyle Palmieri was dropped to the fourth line to help flank Rickard Rakell with Tomas Fleischmann. Meanwhile Jiri Sekac, who replaced Palmieri on the third line, winged Andrew Cogliano with Nate Thompson. "I wanted to make sure that if that’s the route we’re going to go, then I wanted to see if they at least had sort of some good chemistry together," said Coach Boudreau of the mixes. "By no means are those set in stone." If they are, Etem will be a healthy scratch.

Emerson Etem will draw back into the Ducks lineup for Game 6 Wednesday in Chicago.

Head coach Bruce Boudreau will insert the gritty, speedy winger back on the fourth line with Jiri Sekac and Rickard Rakell, replacing Tomas Fleischmann. Etem sat out Game 5 but has played 11 games overall this postseason where he has netted three goals on 23 shots, including a goal in the Ducks' 5-4 double-overtime loss in Game 4.

Emerson Etem was back on the fourth line during Wednesday's morning skate.

He should be expected to draw back into the lineup in Game 6 after he watched Monday's game from the press box as a healthy scratch. Tomas Fleischmann appears as though he will be the odd-man out to make room for Etem's return.
May 27 - 1:33 PM

Emerson Etem will be a healthy scratch Monday night for Game 5 against Chicago.

Etem will give way to veteran forward Tomas Fleischmann Monday night as head coach Bruce Boudreau will shake his lineup up. Etem has scored three goals in 11 games this postseason and even scored a goal in the Ducks 5-4 overtime loss in Game 4 Saturday night.
May 25 - 8:55 PM

Emerson Etem's third goal of the playoffs tied Game 4 at one apiece.

The Long Beach, California native has played well in 11 post-season games as a bottom-six forward. He has yet to garner an assist in the playoffs and it was his first goal in the third round.
May 24 - 7:21 AM

Emerson Etem will be joined by Jiri Sekac, James Wisniewski, Korbinian Holzer and Jason LaBarbera in the press box on Friday night for Game Four versus Calgary.

Of the quintet, only Etem has seen any playoff action this postseason. He has two goals in seven games thus far, which includes one in Game One against Calgary.

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

Etem had been playing on the fourth line, but he wasn't in that role during Thursday's practice. Instead it looks like Jiri Sekac will be inserted into the lineup. Etem has two goals in seven playoff games this year.

Emerson Etem found the back of the net in Anaheim's 6-1 win against Calgary on Thursday.

May 1 - 10:30 AM

Emerson Etem scored an incredible goal during Anaheim's 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Wednesday.

Etem did a fantastic job getting past Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba before using a backhander to find the back of the net. It's one of those markers that really should be watched. It was also his first and only goal of the first round series as Anaheim eliminated Winnipeg in four games.
Apr 23 - 9:19 AM

Emerson Etem will return to the Ducks lineup Wednesday night against Edmonton.

Etem will return to the lineup after sitting out the Ducks four previous games. Overall this season, the 22-year-old has picked up five goals and five assists in 42 games. He will most like skate on the fourth line Wednesday night with Tomas Fleischmann and Chris Wagner.
Apr 1 - 5:35 PM

Emerson Etem and Tomas Fleischmann will be scratched against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday night.

Etem has yet to fully blossom through 109 career NHL games since the 2012-13 season, producing 15 goals, 31 points, and 150 hits during that span. He has 10 points and 57 hits through 42 games this season. The veteran Fleischmann meanwhile has three points and nine hits through his first 10 games with the Ducks. And he's accumulated 24 points and 62 hits through 62 combined games with the Panthers and now Ducks.
