Source: Emery heads back to Russia


In an attempt to resolve his contract issues, Ray Emery is heading back to Russia, sources tell Sportsnet.

Emery will report back to Atlant Mytishchi of the Continental Hockey League (KHL), as early as Wednesday while his agent, J.P. Barry, tries to resolve the contract dispute.

The exchange rate on the Russian ruble has North American players such as Emery upset as some of them are now being short-changed by as much as 30 per cent on their negotiated salary.
