On Sunday afternoon, news broke that former NHl goalie Ray Emery passed away at the age of 35. Apparently, he and some friends had been swimming in Hamilton harbor when Emery failed to resurface.

Emery had played for several NHL teams, including a stint with the Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks, the Philadelphia Flyers on two different occasions, the Ottawa Senators, and the Anaheim Ducks. Emery last played in the NHL with the Flyers in 2014-2015.

Many in the NHL have sent out their condolences and remembrances, including Bernie Parent, whose record for the most wins in the month of March Emery had tied some 30 years later.

May he rest in peace.

Emery’s death is a shocker. You have to hate seeing a guy who was fairly high-profile and still only ~35 pass away without warning.
I’m kinda torn on him though. He turned into roid-rage-Ray that last season in Philly (not that I actually think PEDs were involved) – there were a couple of incidents there that made me more than ready to see him retire.
I am curious about the circumstances of his death. A late Saturday night swim – ok, how much had everyone been drinking? Did he smack his head on something? Was there an undertow? Did he get tangled up in something?

I’ve been torn too especially with the alleged abuse of his ex-fiance.

Obviously his death was a tragic accident that you wouldn’t wish on anyone. Wouldn’t surprise me if it was all of the above.

Been asking all those questions myself. And no, he wasn’t exactly a fan favorite, just sad to see someone with half their life ahead of them did unexpectedly.

Morning all. Had a dream last night that my apartment was being used for a reality show. I just wanted them gone so I could go to bed.

Not a soccer/football/kickyball sports person but I did get sucked into the World Cup Final. Probably because championship games are exciting regardless of sports.
