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

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
