Bulletin: Ray Emery to donate more than $14,000 to CHEO
OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators goaltender Ray Emery will donate more than $14,000 to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Emery told the media of his decision following the team’s practice today and before leaving for Toronto, where the Senators take on the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

“I got the fine yesterday (Thursday) and I asked (general manager) Bryan (Murray) if I can turn my fine into a donation and the team was cool with that,” said Emery. “So I’ll donate the money to CHEO.”

Emery has asked the club to contribute the amount of the fine, which is 1/187th of his regular-season salary, to CHEO. The fine was levied by the Senators for missing the team’s practice on Monday, Jan. 28, in New York.
