Can a non-wireless capable computer print to a USB-connected printer through ethernet?

I have a desktop computer that is not capable of wireless internet. I also have two laptops in the house, and would like to print wirelessly. The printer is connected directly to the desktop. If I purchased the airport extreme and connected the printer to it instead, while having an ethernet cable between the desktop and the AP extreme, would the desktop be able to print without changing anything?
