Michael Emerson RW Chicago Steel USHL

Emerson most likely will not spend much time with the Hurricanes organization.   He was another older player picked in 2023 and turned 20 years old at the start of the college season.  Emerson has not shown great production at any level of hockey.  He left the University of North Dakota because of a lack of playing time and returned to his junior team this season.  One would expect a 20-year-old to dominate at the junior level, but Emerson has not shown this ability.  

Future Outlook: Fringe AHLer
