The Arizona Coyotes announced today that the club has signed forward Emerson Etem to a one-year, two-way contract.

The 24-year-old Etem skated in three games with the Anaheim Ducks last season, and scored one goal in one game with the AHL’s San Diego Gulls.

The 6-foot-1, 212-pound forward has totaled 22 goals and 24 assists for 46 points in 173 career NHL games with Anaheim, the New York Rangers and Vancouver, as well as 52 goals and 41 assists for 93 points in 120 AHL contests with San Diego, Norfolk and Syracuse.

A native of Long Beach, Calif., Etem was a first-round selection (29th overall) by Anaheim in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
