Ottawa goaltender Ray Emery has surgery to repair cartilage in wrist

"Everything went very well," GM Bryan Murray said on the eve of the first round of the NHL entry draft in this Ohio city.

The hand was an issue for a great part of last season and had to be fixed, said Murray. The surgery on a partially torn meniscus was done at a clinic in Cleveland.

Emery will wait six weeks before beginning his pre-season training program. Murray speculated that Emery would not see game action during training camp until mid-September.

Murray was named GM after John Muckler was fired earlier this week. Murray coached the Senators to the Eastern Conference championship. Ottawa lost to Anaheim in a five-game Stanley Cup final.

Emery, who played every playoff game, is currrently after an increase to the $925,000 he made last season. Agent J.P. Barry will be seeking a significant raise.

Murray said he has talked to "a couple of guys" on the phone about the now-vacant head coaching position.

"Over the next day or two I hope to sit down with a couple of people to discuss the job," he said.
