Former NHL goaltender Ray Emery is presumed dead after an apparent drowning incident early Sunday morning. He was reportedly out with friends swimming when he never resurfaced.

Emery, who was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, also died in his hometown. The 35-year-old was swimming with friends at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club around 6 am when he went under water.

He never resurfaced. As the hours went on without Emery resurfacing, the first responders switched their operation to a recovery effort to find his body.

“They went out for a swim and unfortunately, he didn’t emerge after diving in,” Inspector Marty Schulenberg told The Hamilton Spectator. “We responded along with Hamilton Fire and EMS. Unfortunately, our efforts on the water and in the area just around the piers were met with negative results.”

At the time of the post, it appears like the first responders have not found his body yet. According to media reports, Emery was arrested last year after an ex-fiancée alleged that he beat her multiple times.

He last played in the NHL with the Philadelphia Flyers during the 2014-15 season. He appeared in 31 games, including 25 starts, with a 10-11-7 record. He also had a .894 save percentage and 3.06 goals against average.

Besides playing for the Flyers, he also played for the Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks, and the Anaheim Ducks.
