Former Ottawa Senators goaltender, Ray Emery, has been identified as the man who drowned in the Hamilton Harbour on Sunday morning, according to Hamilton Police.

The police say that Emery was swimming with friends when he failed to resurface. The death does not appear to be suspicious and is being called “a case of misadventure.”

The Hamilton native, 35, played in the NHL for 11 seasons after being drafted by the Ottawa Senators 99th overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

He led the Senators to a cup final during the 2006-2007 campaign before winning the 2013 Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks.

During his career, he also spent time with the Philadelphia Flyers and the Anaheim Ducks.

Senators owner Eugene Melnyk released a statement on Sunday, condoling Emery’s passing:
