PHILADELPHIA - Ray Emery is the latest goaltender the Philadelphia Flyers think can be their answer in net.

Emery signed a one-year, $1.65 million contract with the Flyers as he returns for a second tour of duty there to compete with Steve Mason for the No. 1 job.

Emery went 17-1-0 with the Chicago Blackhawks this past season while sharing stars with Corey Crawford. The 30-year-old wanted a better chance to be the man with a team than he would've gotten next year after Crawford helped Chicago win the Stanley Cup.

A hip injury derailed Emery's 2009-10 season with the Flyers. It could have ended his career but he revitalized it with the Anaheim Ducks and then the Blackhawks.

Flyers captain Claude Giroux said Friday he'd welcome Emery returning.

"I had the chance to play with Emery before," Giroux said. "He's a good teammate and a great goalie."
