Emery continues to try and solidify his place as the Top Dog Goalie Gone Wild. After spending a year in hockey's version of purgatory, you'd think he'd be playing life on the straight and narrow, doing whatever he could to be given another shot at the NHL.
”Razor” Ray, however, seems to have other ideas.
As the Ottawa Citizen reports, Emery has a history of vehicle-related violations. In the latest incident:
"Emery was charged under the stunt driving provisions of the Highway Traffic Act. Under Ontario law, police have the authority to seize a vehicle going faster than 50 km/h above the speed limit, however they would not confirm how fast the vehicle was going."
Just the day before, the same newspaper was discussing “Razor” Ray’s future.
Emery had a solid season with Atlant Mistishchi of the KHL, compiling a 22-8 record with a 2.12 GAA and 0.920 save percentage.
What NHL team might be willing to take a chance on “Razor?”
Prior to this incident, the Toronto Maple Leafs were the first team to come to my mind, with Justin Pogge's ability to reach his potential in question.
Other teams interested in his service and willing to take a chance on his volatile personality may include the Flyers, the Islanders, the Avalanche or the Lightning.
Take part in my latest poll and weigh in on this issue.
If none of these pan out for Emery, maybe “Razor” Ray will go for an action acting career—failing that, he could also become a stuntman!
