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 first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
