Ducks Recall Etem and Vatanen from Norfolk
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has recalled right wing Emerson Etem and defenseman Sami Vatanen from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In addition, the club has reassigned center Peter Holland and defenseman Jordan Hendry to Norfolk.
 
Etem
Etem, 20 (6/16/92), collected 12-2=14 points with a +1 rating and 12 penalty minutes (PIM) in 40 games with Norfolk this season. Selected in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the Long Beach, CA native is the highest drafted Southern California born-and-trained player in Ducks history and third highest in NHL history. The 6-1, 210-pound wing was named to the AHL Eastern Conference All-Star team on Jan. 23.
 
Etem led the entire Canadian Hockey League (WHL, OHL, QMJHL) in goals (61) and shorthanded goals (10), and co-led in game-winning goals (11) last season. In 65 games with Medicine Hat of the Western Hockey League, he earned 61-46=107 points with a +29 rating. Etem was the first WHL player to score 60 goals in a season since 2000-01, when Swift Current’s Layne Ulmer scored 63 in 68 games.
 
Vatanen, 21 (6/3/91), began the season on Injured Reserve and did not make an appearance in Anaheim’s first two

games of 2012-13 before being reassigned to Norfolk on Jan. 25. He appeared in 34 games with the Admirals this season, earning 4-19=23 points with 30 PIM. Vatanen led Norfolk defensemen in goals, assists and points, and paced all club rookies in assists and scoring at the time of his recall.
 
Holland, 22 (1/14/91), made his NHL season debut with Anaheim on Jan. 25 at Vancouver, going scoreless in 7:57 time-on-ice (TOI). Named to the AHL Eastern Conference All-Star team on Jan. 17, Holland has recorded 12-19=31 points with 58 PIM in 34 AHL games this season. The 6-2, 192-pound center returns to the Admirals leading the club in scoring, co-leading in assists, and tied for second in goals.
 
Hendry, 28 (2/23/84), appeared in one game for Anaheim this season, going scoreless in his Ducks debut on Jan. 19 at Vancouver. Signed as a free agent on July 1, 2012, Hendry began his eighth professional season with the Admirals in October. In 29 AHL games, the 6-0, 194-pound defenseman has collected 2-2=4 points with a +1 rating and 31 PIM.
