Emery remains with Flyers on 1-year deal

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia Flyers retained the veteran backup to challenge incumbent Steve Mason, re-signing Ray Emery to a one-year contract on Tuesday.

No financial terms were disclosed by the club, but multiple reports state Emery will earn $1 million in 2014-15, a cut of $650,000 from his original one-year deal signed last July.

The fiery 31-year-old backstop finished 9-12-2 with a 2.96 goals-against average, .903 save percentage and two shutouts over 28 appearances for Philadelphia.

Subbing for the injured Mason at the outset of the postseason, he went 1-2 with a 3.49 GAA in three starts against the New York Rangers.

Emery was co-recipient of the Jennings Trophy along with starter Corey Crawford on the Stanley Cup-winning Chicago Blackhawks in 2013, having gone 17-1-0 with a 1.94 goals-against average and three shutouts in 21 appearances.

He was originally brought to Philly in the summer of 2009 on a $1.5 million, one-year deal, taking the starting job from the departed Martin Biron. However, serious hip injuries derailed his season.

Emery was shut down in March of 2010 and forced to undergo season-ending bone-graft surgery to repair avascular necrosis in his right hip the following month, shortly after a bothersome left-hip injury required the team to place him on long-term injured reserve.

Philly also made a depth signing for the minor leagues, inking goaltender Rob Zepp to a one-year, two-way contract. Zepp, 32, spent the last seven seasons playing in Germany.
