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 mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
