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.
