Flyers re-sign G Ray Emery, Steve Mason's backup, with a 1-year deal and prospect G Rob Zepp

PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Flyers have re-signed backup goaltender Ray Emery with a one-year contract.

The Flyers made the move Tuesday on the first day of free agency. They also signed minor league goalie Rob Zepp to a two-way, one-year deal.

Emery was 9-12-2 with two shutouts and a 2.96 goals-against average last season as Steve Mason's backup.

He is 135-75-21 in his career with Ottawa, Anaheim, Chicago and two stints with the Flyers.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
