The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks lost backup goalie Ray Emery and re-signed defenseman Michal Rozsival and forward Michal Handzus.
Emery accepted a $1.65 million, one-year offer with the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday. Rozsival got a two-deal with Chicago while Handzus agreed to a one-year contract.
Emery's making the move after teaming with Corey Crawford to win the William B. Jennings Trophy awarded to team with the lowest goals-against average.
Emery, who played for the Flyers in 2009-10, went 17-1 with a 1.94 goals-against average last season. He spent two years in Chicago and will now compete for the starting job with Steve Mason.
Antti Raanta could back up Crawford after signing a one-year deal last month.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Flyers picked up a Stanley Cup-winning goaltender on the first day of free agency, but his name is not Tim Thomas.
Ray Emery, who reached the Cup Final with Ottawa in 2007 and won it all with Chicago this year, signed a one-year deal with Philadelphia on Friday, the franchise with whom he spent the 2009-10 season.

Four years after leaving the team with what many believed would be a career ending ailment, “Razor” Ray Emery is returning to the city of brotherly love.
As free agency was just to get underway, Ren Lavoie of RDS reported the goaltender will be joining the Philadelphia Flyers. Terms of the deal are unknown, but...
There is a lot to like about the Flyers' signing of unrestricted free agent goaltender Ray Emery yesterday. In tandem with Steve Mason, the team may not have elite goaltending on paper but a split-time arrangement and healthy competition could work between two players who want to be here and feel like they still have something to prove.
You can't argue with the price tag...
The Flyers welcomed back a familiar face today, signing goaltender Ray Emery to a one-year contract. Having rid themselves of the contract Ilya Bryzgalov by exercising the amnesty clause, Emery will fill the roster spot vacated by the move. Emery will compete for the starting job with goaltender Steve Mason, acquired in April from the Columbus Blue Jackets...

(Photo: Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images) Free agency kicked off today at noon, and Paul Holmgren made signing a goaltender his first order of business. Today, the Philadelphia Flyers signed goaltender Ray Emery to a 1-year deal worth $1.65M. Emery, 30, was the back-up goaltender of the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. It appeared that he would [...]
Good re-signing for Chicago.
Michael Handzus has agreed to terms on one year deal with CHI, paperwork to be completed.

Claude Giroux contract is official and Ray Emery is your new, and very likely, No. 1 goalie for the Flyers.
Gonna be very interesting to see how Emery and Steve Mason work out in net this year. You got to be impressed with Emery's attitude about being a better team guy and understanding that goaltending is a tandem operation.
Courtesy of the Flyers, here are the two transcripts...

The NHL draft is in the rearview mirror, the free agency period is upon us, and that means one thing in Philadelphia. Among a littany of trade rumors and speculation as to which free agents they will attempt to sign, the Flyers were once again in the market for a starting goaltender.
Other than last year when Ilya Bryzgalov was entering his second...
It looks like Ray Emery will join the Flyers and their goaltending carousel. The Fourth Period is reporting he’ll likely sign a 1 year deal. Emery was 17-1 with Chicago last year with a 1.94 GAA and .922 Save %. He could work very well in a split situation with Steve Mason. Has Philly figured something out? Finally?
15 minutes to go until free agency gets...
Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!
11:45AM: The free agent market opens in about 15 minutes. It will be very interesting to see what the Islanders do today. We all know that they are in desperate need of goaltending. If the Isles do not get a goalie today, relax, it is not the end of the world. The goalies are the market are underwhelming, and a trade might be a better route...
In case you have not been following the twitter world...
Ray Emery will be joining the Flyers.
Daniel Alfredsson will be signing with the Wings shortly.
Scuderi may be deciding between the Kings and Penguins.
Dan Cleary has a decision to make, Dallas or Detroit.

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Speaking of Clowe, the Habs were willing to do a short-term deal with him but it’s believed the UFA power forward wants to get a bit more security, and who can blame him. Keep an eye on the Devils, I believe they are the front runners for Clowe.
The Devils need a replacement for power forward David Clarkson, who has drawn a ton of interest...
