The 28-year-old netminder has been out of hockey for more than a year after undergoing hip surgery.

Emery was diagnosed with avascular necrosis, a disease where the interruption of blood supply causes bone tissue to die.

In 163 career NHL regular-season games, Emery posted an 87-51-15 record with a 2.70 goals-against average. He hasn't played since Feb. 1, 2010.
