"I'm just excited to be back playing again. I realize I had a tough operation and have been away from the game for a while. I felt Anaheim and heir organization was a good spot for me to come back. They seemed interested. I'm just lucky to be back and to be able to play some games in the American League and go from there."

"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
