Former NHL goaltender Ray Emery died early Sunday morning in Hamilton, Ontario after drowning while swimming with friends.

Emery’s death does not appear to be suspicious. According to Insp. Marty Schulenberg, Emery jumped off of a boat into the water near the Leander Boat Club to go swimming, and his friends called emergency services at about 6 a.m. Sunday when he didn’t resurface.

Emery, 35, played for several teams throughout his 11-year career including the Ottawa Senators, the Philadelphia Flyers, the Anaheim Ducks and the Chicago Blackhawks. He won the William M. Jennings trophy and the Stanley Cup.

Many took to social media to pay tribute to the former NHL champ.

“On behalf of the Ottawa Senators, I wish to express my sincere condolences on the passing of Ray Emery. Ray was instrumental in our run to the 2007 Stanley Cup Final, and at his best he brought a competitive edge and combative mentality to the game. On behalf of our entire organization, I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to Ray’s family, friends and loved ones.” – Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said in a release.
