Ray Emery: Back to His Old Self

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IJanuary 28, 2009

It seems like former Ottawa Senators goalie Ray Emery is up to his old tricks again.

In the video, we see Emery taking a swing at a trainer with Atlant Mytishchi, the team that Emery joined when he left the Ottawa Senators.

He apparently lost his temper during his team's loss—a 5-1 loss against Lokomotiv Yaroslavl on Wednesday.

The clip lasts 40 seconds. It shows both Emery and the trainer staring each other down before Emery jumps and tries to punch the trainer. It sends the trainer reeling into the aisle toward the dressing room. The incident started when the trainer wanted Emery to wear a baseball cap.

J.P. Barry, Emery's agent, said he spoke with Emery. According to him, the incident is being overblown.

"From what I understand, Ray was upset about being pulled, he was hot and his head was sweaty," said Barry. "He told the trainer three times that he didn't want the hat and then the guy gave him a tough-guy stare. Ray then pushed him away."
