Ray Emery (born September 28, 1982), often nicknamed Razor and Sugar Ray, is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender, currently with the Anaheim Ducks. He formerly played for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL) and Atlant Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He has been awarded multiple honors. Emery led the Ottawa Senators to the Stanley Cup finals in 2007, making it the Ottawa Senators first trip to the finals since 1927. They later lost to Anaheim Ducks.

Emery was chosen 99th overall by the Senators in the 2001 NHL entry draft. During the 2006–07 season, Emery signed a three-year deal with the Senators worth $9.5 million of starting goaltender for the Ottawa Senators in their run to the Stanley Cup Finals. However, on June 20, 2008, the Ottawa Senators waived Emery, and then bought out his contract after a string of off-ice incidents caused the organization to sour on him. On July 9, 2008, it was announced that Emery had signed a one-year, $2M contract with Atlant Mytishchi of the Russian KHL.

On June 10, 2009, the Philadelphia Flyers announced that Emery had signed a one-year deal for a reported $1.5 million. In March 2010, GM Paul Holmgren announced that Emery would be out for remainder of the season due to avascular necrosis and that a bone graft would be done to alleviate his hip issues. Doctors were able to catch the disease early on before it spread, and in April, the surgery was declared to be extremely successful. In July, Emery began the grueling and tedious workout and rehabilitation process.
