"Ray Emery has been a solid NHL netminder for several years and is only 28 years old. We are going to give him a chance to go to Syracuse and establish himself again. He's worked hard to get back into shape and we are looking forward to seeing what he can do."
-- Anaheim Ducks Executive Vice President/GM Bob Murray
The waiver period ended at noon ET on Tuesday.
Emery is attempting to come back from avascular necrosis, a condition which saw the near-complete degradation of the top of the ball in his hip joint. It's the same condition that led to the end of the athletic career of two-sport star Bo Jackson.
Emery had surgery in April, and began on-ice workouts in October. He hasn't played an organized hockey game since Feb. 1, 2010, when he made 18 saves for the Philadelphia Flyers in a shutout victory against the Calgary Flames.
