Blackhawks, Emery close to new deal

The Chicago Blackhawks appear to be close to re-signing veteran goaltender Ray Emery to a new contract, a source close to the situation told TFP.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman met with Emery's agent J.P. Barry on Sunday evening and will continue discussions this week.

Emery, 30, earned $1.15 million this past season, where he posted a 17-1-0 record with a 1.94 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.

It's believed Emery will receive a fair raise, the source said, and the netminder is comfortable with his role with the organization, as the backup to Corey Crawford.

In 228 career NHL regular-season games with the Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Anaheim Ducks and Blackhawks, Emery has registered a 126-63-19 record with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage.

He was originally drafted by the Senators in the fourth-round (99th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
