For the third time this season, Ray Emery has been released from a professional tryout contract.

On Thursday, the Toronto Marlies — AHL affiliate of the Maple Leafs — announced they’ve released Emery from the PTO he signed back in mid-December.

Emery, 33, was signed by the organization after injuries hit netminders James Reimer and Garret Sparks. He wasn’t able to secure much playing time, though, going 3-2-0 with an .888 save percentage and 3.00 GAA.

Prior to his time with the Marlies, Emery had been on PTOs with Los Angeles’ AHL affiliate in Ontario and, prior to that, on one with the Tampa Bay Lightning during training camp.
