The Ontario Reign, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League, have agreed to a professional tryout with goaltender Ray Emery.
Emery, 33, appeared in 31 games with the Philadelphia Flyers (NHL) last season, going 10-11-7 with a 3.06 goals-against average and an .894 save percentage. Over a 13-year professional career, the Hamilton, Ont., native has skated in 287 NHL contests with Philadelphia, Chicago, Anaheim and Ottawa, earning a 248-155-46 record with a 2.58 GAA and a .913 save percentage.
Emery won a Stanley Cup championship with Chicago in 2013, and in that same season he teamed up with Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford to capture the William Jennings Trophy for the NHL’s lowest team goals-against average.
The 6-foot-2, 196-pound netminder holds 162 games of AHL experience with Binghamton, Adirondack and Syracuse, posting an 81-61-18 record, a 2.50 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage. Emery was a member of the AHL All-Rookie Team in 2002-03 and was a two-time AHL All-Star Classic participant.
