The Anaheim Ducks have signed goaltender Ray Emery to a one-year, two-way contract worth $500,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level.

The former Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers netminder will be placed on waivers today at Noon et.

The two-way deal will allow Emery to take longer then the standard two-week conditioning AHL stint without having to go through waivers to be recalled, however due to Emery's age and NHL experience, he would need to clear waivers first before the Ducks could send him to Syracuse of the AHL.  Should a team claim him today, he would have to remain on that team's NHL roster for the remainder of the season.

The 27-year-old Emery played 29 games with the Flyers last season, however he missed the final 27 games of the regular season and all 23 of the Flyers playoff games while dealing with a groin injury.  He also underwent hip surgery this past off-season that grafted bone from his lower-leg to the ball in his hip joint. 

In 163 career games split between the Senators and Flyers, the Cayuga, Ontario native has a record of 87-51-15 with a 2.70 goals against average and a .907 save percentage.
