The Hamilton Police have confirmed that Canadian athlete and former NHL-goalie Ray Emery drowned in Lake Ontario on Sunday. 

The hockey player went swimming off a boat early Sunday morning and police were called when his body did not resurface at around 6:00 AM. The police were looking in the lake all morning after his disappearance. 

Emery was born in Cayuga, Ontario, about 40 minutes away from Hamilton. His body was found earlier this afternoon about 20 metres where he was last seen swimming.

Many Canadian hockey players have been quick to honour the player, who was on NHL teams like the Chicago Blackhawks, Philadelphia Flyers, and the Canadian team, Ottawa Senators. 

Emery was also known for his engagement to Keisha Chante. Their messy relationship ended in 2017 with Chante accusing Emrey of abusing her several times during 2016.
