The Ducks announced today that they have signed their 2010 29th overall pick and Long Beach native Emerson Etem to a three-year entry level contract. Eric Stephens of the OC Register has the details, and don't forget to follow Etem's elation on his recently renamed Twitter account @tweetem_up.
I told Etem I would follow up with him after my October interview with the newly minted Duck, but I was remiss. Congratulations, Etem, and welcome to the FOWL!
