Etem played 10:49 at even strength and 57 seconds on the PK.
Alain Vigneault said after the game last night that Etem is taking "some steps."
He added that when a player comes to a new team it "takes a while and every time he steps on the ice, you see him talking with his teammates and he’s only going to get better.”
He said that his legs are feeling good and that once he learns the system better he will be able to "play more on instinct."
Etem said that his game is about skating, using his body and being "an energy guy." He said that he "takes pride" in winning 50/50 puck battles and that while he hasn't done it so far in the preseason, "I think that's coming." (NY Post)
