The Ducks have recalled left wing Emerson Etem from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In addition, the Ducks have reassigned center David Steckel to Norfolk.

Etem, 21 (6/16/92), has appeared in 26 contests this season with Anaheim, earning 6-4=10 points with a +2 rating and four penalty minutes (PIM). He scored his first goal of the season, the GWG, as part of a multi-point night (1-1=2) on Oct. 20 vs. Dallas. He added his first career multi-goal game (2-0=2) on Nov. 2 @ Buffalo. Assigned to Norfolk on Dec. 10, Etem appeared in 25 contests with the Admirals, scoring 11-17=28 points with a +9 rating. At the time of his recall, he was tied for the team lead in points (28), second in assists (17) and tied for second in goals (11).

Selected in the first round (29th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Etem made his NHL debut with Anaheim in 2012-13, collecting 3-7=10 points with a +7 rating and nine PIM in 38 contests. The Long Beach, California native has appeared in 64 career contests with the Ducks, collecting 9-11=20 points with a +9 rating and 13 PIM. Etem is the highest-drafted Southern California born-and-trained player in Ducks history and the third-highest in NHL history. In 70 career AHL contests with Norfolk, he has 24-20=44 points with a +8 rating and 18 PIM.

Steckel, 31 (3/15/82), has appeared in six games for the Ducks this year, going scoreless while winning 44-of-68 faceoffs (64.7%). Signed to a one-year contract on Nov. 11, Steckel has played in 425 NHL games with Washington, New Jersey, Toronto and Anaheim, scoring 33-46=79 points with 129 PIM. The 6-6, 215-pound center has also appeared in 36 AHL contests this season with Iowa and Norfolk, collecting 5-10=15 points.

Selected by Los Angeles in the first round (30th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Steckel was acquired by Anaheim from Toronto on Mar. 15, 2013 (in exchange for Ryan Lasch and a 2014 seventh-round draft pick).
