Ducks' rookie games to be streamed live
The three games played by the Ducks' rookies in the upcoming Young Stars tournament in Penticton, Canada, will be streamed live on the team's website, www.anaheimducks.com
The eight-game, round-robin tournament will feature prospects from the Ducks, Vancouver Canucks, San Jose Sharks, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.
The Ducks' prospects will play three games at the South Okanagan Events Centre. All times are Pacific.
Sunday vs. San Jose at 7:30 p.m.
Monday vs. Calgary at 4 p.m.
Wednesday vs. Vancouver at 4 p.m.
Watch for Long Beach native Emerson Etem, (pictured at right) chosen 29th in the June entry draft, and defenseman Cam Fowler, who fell to 12th when the teams choosing ahead of the Ducks unexpectedly claimed forwards. Fowler, who won gold with Team USA at the last world junior championships and at the under-18 world championships in 2009, could win a roster spot with the Ducks this season.
Also worth watching are three other first-round picks: Center Peter Holland (15th overall in 2009), center Kyle Palmieri (26th in 2009) and defenseman Mark Mitera (19th in 2006).
