Today marks the third anniversary of the passing of former Flyers goaltender Ray Emery, who tragically died in a swimming accident in Lake Ontario. He was 35 years old.

Emery spent his first five seasons in the NHL with the Ottawa Senators, most notably starting in net during their run to the 2007 Stanley Cup Final.
