PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ray Emery needs surgery to repair his right hip and will miss the rest of the season.
Emery went 16-11-1 with a 2.64 goals-against average and .905 save percentage in his first season with the Flyers. He had three shutouts.
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said Tuesday that Emery's surgery has not been scheduled.
Michael Leighton has started in Emery's place and will likely be Philadelphia's No. 1 goalie entering the playoffs.
