VID: Long Time Coming for Rookie Emmerton (DET)

Standard Spin: Cory Emmerton has been biding his time for years, toiling in Grand Rapids for 4 full seasons with a point/game mark hovering around 0.5.  2011-12 is finally his chance to show what he's got and Saturday Emmerton exploded for 3 points (2G, 1A). However, with just 5 points in 21 games so far, Emmerton looks like a career grinder unless he starts putting up stats like Saturday on a regular basis. (Dec.18)
