Over the image was written, ‘Ray Emery 1982 – 2018.’ The star athlete made a name for himself in the NHL from the year 2003 to 2015.


He played as a goaltender for four different hockey teams.


They were the Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Anaheim Ducks, and the Chicago Blackhawks. When he was with the Ottawa Senators, in 2007 he helped bring them to the Stanley Cup finals.


In 2013, he eventually won the title with the Chicago Blackhawks. Many hockey teams have taken to social media to offer their condolences to the athlete's family.

The athlete had his share of drama in his life. In 2017, he was arrested for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend with a weapon in 2016.

The alleged victim, BET host Keshia Chante, claimed he'd abused her several times that year.
