Etem makes USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp roster.

Ducks prospect Emerson Etem was one of seven players from Team USA’s 2010 World Junior Championships roster among the 40 named to take part in the National Junior Evaluation Camp this August in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The players will be auditioning for a spot on the U.S. National Junior
Team
that will take part in the 2012 IIHF
World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2011-Jan. 5, 2012, in Calgary and
Edmonton, Alta.

Etem helped the USA capture bronze in Buffalo at the most recent WJC tournament in January, finishing with a goal and a minus-1 rating in six games. The Long Beach native signed his entry-level contract with the Ducks in May.

Other local players named to the evaluation camp were Boston University forward Matt Nieto (Long Beach), Kelowna Rockets forward Shane McColgan (Manhattan Beach), U.S. Under-18 National Development Team forward Rocco Grimaldi (Rossmoor), and Western Michigan forward Chase Balisy (Rancho Santa Margarita).
