It could be as simple as not being the focus of the opposing team, or just having some better players to work with. In another player, I might say he just wasn't putting in 100%, but I'm not sure I've ever seen Etem give anything less. The kid works hard.
I do think he's using his linemates better than he did in the AHL. There were times I felt he was trying to do too much in the AHL, and ended up not doing much of anything at all. He's been making the smart plays, the simple ones, and just putting in the work.
