and Emerson Etem
, each selected by Anaheim in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, will each be making the trek to Lake Placid, N.Y., as will 2009 first-round selection Kyle Palmieri
Both Fowler and Palmieri were members of last year's USA World Junior team, which took home the gold medal after defeating Canada 6-5 in overtime. A total of 44 players in all were invited to this year's Evaluation Camp.
The 18-year-old Fowler, chosen by the Ducks with the 12th overall pick at the 2010 Draft, collected 55 points and a plus-38 rating in 55 games with the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL in 2009-10. Fowler ranked seventh among OHL defensemen in scoring to help Windsor finish first in its conference during the regular season. The 6-1, 190-pound blueliner also added 14 points in 19 OHL Playoff games, helping the Spitfires to their second consecutive OHL championship and second straight Memorial Cup as National Junior Hockey Champions.
A Long Beach native, Etem (also 18 years old), was selected with the 29th overall selection in the draft held at Staples Center this past June. He recorded 65 points with a plus-eight rating in 72 games with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL in 2009-10. Etem led all WHL rookies in goals and finished fourth overall in points last season. The 6-0, 190-pound right wing added another 10 points in 12 WHL playoff games and was named Medicine Hat’s Rookie of the Year for 2009-10.
Palmieri, 19, was one of Anaheim's two first-round picks (along with Peter Holland
) in the 2009 Draft (selected 26th overall). The 5-10, 190-pound forward completed his freshman season with the University of Notre Dame in 2009-10. In 33 games with the Fighting Irish, Palmieri totaled nine goals, eight assists and 17 points.
