Chicago Blackhawks sign Khabibulin to replace Emery, retain Rozsival, Handzus

CHICAGO - The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks lost backup goalie Ray Emery and re-signed defenceman 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.
