The Chicago Blackhawks have signed backup goalie Ray Emery to a one-year contract extension worth a reported $1.15 million.

The Chicago Blackhawks have locked up their backup goalie for another year, signing Ray Emery to a one-year contract extension. Emery, 29, has been a solid stopper in the net this season, compiling a 15-9-4 record and 2.81 goals-against-average in 34 appearances in his first season in Chicago. The Blackhawks announced the signing on Saturday, just before the beginning of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The deal is worth $1.15 million, according to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun. Emery is an eight-year veteran of the NHL. He played his first five seasons for the Ottawa Senators, who drafted him in 2001. He also played for the Flyers and Ducks before signing with the Blackhawks prior to this season.

Emery has a career 2.69 GAA and a save percentage of .904. He's had 11 shutouts in his career, but none since 2010 with the Flyers.
