Former NHL goalie Ray Emery drowns in Lake Ontario

Police say the 35-year-old’s death appears to be a ‘case of misadventure’

Hamilton police say former NHL goalie Ray Emery has drowned in Lake Ontario.

Police say Emery’s death does not appear to be suspicious, calling it a “case of misadventure.”

Emery, 35, played for several teams throughout a career spanning more than a decade, including the Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers.

He won the William M. Jennings trophy — and the Stanley Cup — with the Blackhawks in 2013.

Police say Emery went swimming off of a boat, and his friends called emergency services at about 6 a.m. Sunday when he didn’t resurface.

Former teammates, coaches and executives who played and worked with Emery have been expressing condolences online.
