Cory Emmerton is projected to start the season on the Detroit Red Wings' fourth line.
Emmerton practiced with Mikael Samuelsson and Drew Miller on Tuesday. That's after he was put on waivers, went unclaimed, and then kept on the active roster anyways because Patrick Eaves is injured. "Probably the most eventful, uneventful 36 hours ever," said Emmerton. "To end up here, it seemed like a lot was going on but there was nothing really. It was obviously pretty stressful, but you become stronger as a person and player by going through something like that."

Cory Emmerton seems to have the inside track in the battle for a roster spot with the Detroit Red Wings.
The competition is fierce given that 16 forwards are inked to one-way contracts, not including Tomas Tatar. "I did everything I could this summer to get myself ready," Emmerton said. "I'm not putting any pressure on myself. That's when it becomes more difficult to play. The thing for me is I know how our team plays and how we play our systems. I just get to go out and play." Emmerton had five goals and eight points in 48 games last season.

Cory Emmerton hasn't fully recovered from the broken finger he sustained on Oct. 12 while playing in the Finnish Elite League.
Emmerton had surgery to put in a plate. "The plate makes it harder on the tendons to move," Emmerton said "It doesn't feel bad or hurt, but it's so stiff it doesn't have the range of motion to protect itself. I've been learning to do things left-handed." The injury combined with the lockout is making it hard for Emmerton to develop his game after he established himself with the Red Wings last season by playing in 71 NHL games.
