TAMPA, Fla. - Flyers goaltender Ray Emery is done for the season, according to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

Emery, who has been out of action since Feb. 1 and was placed on the long-term injured list yesterday, will have surgery "in the near future," Holmgren said.

"He is suffering from avascular necrosis and will have a bone graft done to alleviate his hip issues," Holmgren said.

Dr. David Ruch will perform the surgery at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C.
