Emery to join B-Sens for weekend stint

The Ottawa Senators announced today that they have assigned goaltender Ray Emery to the Binghamton Senators for a two-game conditioning stint.

The 25-year-old has seen limited practice time and no regular-season action with Ottawa due to rehab from surgery to his left wrist.

Emery will start for the B-Sens on Friday night when they host the Syracuse Crunch at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena. He is also slated to start when Binghamton continues its homestand against the Hershey Bears on Saturday.

Emery spent three seasons with the B-Sens from 2002-05, compiling a 76-58-18 record in 154 career AHL games. He was named to the AHL All-Rookie Team in 2003 and played in the league’s All-Star Classic in 2003 and 2004.

In 103 NHL games with Ottawa, Emery has a record of 59-27-10 with a 2.59 GAA and eight shutouts. He backstopped the Senators to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007, going 13-7 with a 2.26 GAA in 20 appearances.
