After buying out the bloated nine-year, $51M contract of underperforming goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, the Philadelphia Flyers were once again in the market for a netminder. Steve Mason was the only viable option they had as a starter, but now they’ve brought in some competition for him. Philadelphia inked Ray Emery to a one-year contract today. The 30-year-old goalie is coming off a season with Chicago where he backed up Corey Crawford en route to a Jennings Trophy and the Stanley Cup. Emery was the starting goalie for Ottawa when they reached the Cup Final in ’07, only to lose to Anaheim in six games, and played for Philadelphia back in 2009-10, starting 30 games before being shut down with a hip injury. Emery played in 21 regular-season games with Chicago last year, posting a 17-1-0 record with a .922 save percentage and a 1.94 goals-against average. He had a one-year stint with the Ducks (2009-10), in addition to his time with Ottawa (2002-08), Philadelphia and Chicago (2011-13). For his career, he’s played in 228 games, notching a 128-63-19-14 record with a .908 save percentage and a 2.28 goals-against average. He was a fourth-round draft pick of the Senators back in 2001.
