Flyers bring back G Ray Emery on 1-year contract; sign him away from Chicago

The Philadelphia Flyers and Ray Emery have agreed to a $1.65 million, one-year contract.

Emery played for the Flyers in 2009-10 and spent the last two seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks. He went 17-1with a 1.94 goals-against average for the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in 2012.

Emery will compete with Steve Mason for the starting spot in Philadelphia. The Flyers bought out the final seven years of goalie Ilya Bryzgalov's contract last month.
