Emery, 35, passed away early Sunday morning in an apparent drowning accident in Hamilton, Ontario, Emily Kaplan of ESPN.com reports.
According to Hamilton Police, Emery's body was recovered in a harbor, where he was last seen before being reported missing hours earlier. An Ontario native, Emery spent 11 years in the NHL with the Senators, Flyers, Blackhawks and Ducks, winning his lone Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2013. Emery had last appeared in the NHL during the 2014-15 campaign and played in the AHL and for a German club the season after before his career wrapped up.
Emery has cleared waivers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Emery was on return waivers since he had been with foreign club Deutsche Eishockey Liga prior to signing a tryout contract with the Flyers and subsequently signing with the club Friday to play out the remainder of the regular season. Barring an injury to Steve Mason, it's not likely that Emery will see any game action with the Flyers barely hanging onto the second wild-card playoff spot out of the Eastern Conference.
Emery signed with Philadelphia on Friday for the remainder of the season.
If the Flyers hold on to the wildcard spot, Emery will not be eligible to suit up in the postseason because he was not with the team at the trade deadline. The netminder has bounced around for the 2015-16 campaign, as he spent time with two separate clubs in the AHL as well as a stint with the Mannheim Eagles of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga where he saw the most game action. Look for the 33-year-old to give starter Steve Mason some time off heading into the playoffs.
Emery is on a tryout contract with the the AHL Toronto Marlies. He currently sits third on the depth chart with the team.
The situation might not last long -- injured goalie Garret Sparks is due back soon and Antoine Bibeau will likely be back from the big club soon as James Reimer gets closer to full health. Emery is fully recovered from experimental surgery to halt avascular necrosis, which causes the deterioration of the ball in the hip. But Emery is unlikely to ever see NHL ice again -- the odds are long for him to return to the bright lights in an NHL city and he might end up in the ECHL sooner rather than later.
Emery has been released from his PTO, the Tampa Bay Times reports.With the Lighting claiming Kevin Poulin off of waivers, Emery became expendable and has now been released after being on a professional tryout. He'll likely look to find his way on to an AHL roster until another NHL team wants to give him a look.
Emery, who is in Tampa's camp on a tryout, had a strong start to his audition with the team. He stopped all 10 shots he faced in 30 minutes of play.He still has a long haul to make the team now that Kristers Gudlevskis is back to form. Gudlevskis is under contract with the team and Emery would need to continue to really impress. However, Gudlevskis could benefit with more seasoning in the minors and Emery is out to prove he still belongs in the NHL. Watch this battle carefully as camp progresses.
Emery gave up two goals on 26 shots Thursday in a 3-1 loss to Carolina.Not a bad outing for Emery, but the Flyers don't do a lot of winning these days. He's now got a six-game losing streak going, though it's some solace perhaps that four of those came in overtime.
Emery is slated to start Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.With Emery on track to become a free agent this offseason, this could be his final start for the Flyers, with Steve Mason presumably on track to start Saturday's season finale against the Senators. Emery will look to help the Flyers win their third straight game Thursday, while the Hurricanes have dropped their last two contests.
Emery will start Saturday's game against Carolina, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.Steve Mason will start the second game of the back-to-back, Sunday against the rival Penguins. It's been a rough year in net for Emery, but he'll at least catch a break here with the easier matchup.
Emery gave up five goals on 34 shots in Saturday's overtime loss to the Oilers.Not a good night for Emery, who made an unexpected start after projected starter Steve Mason felt ill after warmups. Emery drops to 10-10-6 on the season with a .892 save percentage and 3.15 GAA. He's a decent backup goalie, but his poor rebound control and lackluster rate stats make him unappealing in most fantasy leagues.
Emery stopped eight of the 10 shots he faced in relief of starter Steve Mason during Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Flames.
Emery gave up one goal on 28 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Senators.A strong outing for Emery, who falls to 10-10-5 on the season. He's got just one win in his last six games, making him an unattractive fantasy option down the stretch, especially when you consider the Flyers are out of the playoff race and the starting gig belongs to Steve Mason.
Emery is slated to start Sunday's game against the Sens, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Emery, who has a 10-10-4 record with a 3.15 GAA and .893 save percentage in 26 appearances this season, will give Saturday's starter in goal, Steve Mason, a breather on Sunday. The start marks Emery's first game action since Feb. 19.
Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun suggests that Emery is a candidate to start Sunday's game against the Senators.Emery last saw game action on Feb. 19, but with Steve Mason having started Saturday's win over the Wings, the Flyers could turn to Emery on Sunday against his former team.
Emery (lower body) practiced Monday, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.With Anthony Stolarz headed back to AHL Lehigh Valley, and Emery no longer listed on IR by the Flyers, look for Emery to back up Steve Mason on Tuesday against the Flames.
Emery (lower body) practiced Friday, CSN Philadelphia reports.Emery's injury got worse during Monday's practice, but he again seems to be making progress. He does not have a timeline, and won't return any earlier than Tuesday's game against Calgary.
Emery (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Emery did not travel with the team for Tuesday's game at Carolina, and is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.It's unclear when Emery suffered the injury, but it's possible it occurred before the team's back-to-back set over the weekend as Rob Zepp received both starts. Starter Steve Mason is expected back from his own injury within the week, but Emery's next chance to start after Tuesday's contest will be Thursday at Toronto.
Emery stopped 30 of 32, but was stuck with a shootout loss Thursday against Buffalo.It's a strong stat line, but no one wants to be stuck with a loss against the Sabres, who have won just 17 times in 58 games this year. Emery has now taken four losses -- three of them in overtime -- in his last five starts, and he continues to mix good and bad outings in a semi-unpredictable manner.
Emery will be in the cage for Thursday's game against the Sabres, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Emery has alternated strong and poor starts in his four outings in place of the injured Steve Mason, but he'll remain ahead of Rob Zepp on the team's depth chart for the time being. However, if Emery fails to contain a Sabres squad that's averaging only 1.74 goals per game, much of his job security could be squandered.
