Default Sean Avery Suspended by NHL for "Sloppy Seconds" comment

Avery is a joke. This is completely classless.

Avery suspended indefinitely for comments about ex-girlfriend, Phaneuf
ESPN.com news services

DALLAS -- Sean Avery is in trouble with the NHL again, this time for thinly veiled comments about a foe dating his former girlfriend.

Commissioner Gary Bettman suspended Avery indefinitely Tuesday hours after the Dallas Stars pest made "inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game." Avery will meet with Bettman before his punishment is settled. That get-together is likely to happen soon.

Avery's inflammatory comments came following a morning skate in Calgary, where the Stars were playing the Flames on Tuesday night.

Avery approached a group of reporters, asked if a camera was present, then said he wanted to say one thing.


"I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada," he said. "I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don't know what that's about. Enjoy the game tonight."

Avery's ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert, is dating Calgary defensman Dion Phaneuf and had been romantically linked to Mike Komisarek of the Montreal Canadiens. Avery also dated model and actress Rachel Hunter, the girlfriend of Los Angeles Kings center Jarrett Stoll.

"I completely support the league's decision to suspend Sean Avery," Stars owner Tom Hicks said in a statement. "Had the league not have suspended him, the Dallas Stars would have. This organization will not tolerate such behavior, especially from a member of our hockey team. We hold our team to a higher standard and will continue to do so."

Dallas signed Avery to a $15.5 million, four-year deal in July, hoping his grittiness would help last season's Western Conference finalists. Instead, the injury-riddled Stars went into Tuesday night's game with only 20 points, fewest in the Western Conference and near the bottom of the NHL.

This is Avery's third team in as many seasons and fourth of his career. Despite his tough-guy image on the ice, he's become a celebrity beyond the sports world through his interest in fashion, including an internship with "Vogue" magazine.

good move by the NHL. Avery has once more dropped a notch in my books, and i thought he couldnt go any lower. to bad Avery couldnt be in the lineup to see how phaneuf would of handled it. im sure phaneuf would of went after him but like usual avery would of put his tail between his leg and skated to the bench.

on a side note, i really need to find a girl like cuthbert, extremely hot, wealthy and loves hockey as much as me.

Avery has officially surpassed Darcy Tucker and Claude Lemieux as the biggest douchebag in NHL history. As much as I hate those guys - and you can throw in Dale Hunter, Ken "The Rat" Linseman and Dino Ciccarelli in there - they would never, EVER stoop to this level. I hope the guy deep-sixed his career not just with the Stars, but in the NHL in general. Most of the Stars can't stand him anyway and would love to see him gone. But for me, suspending him did nothing but protect his sorry ass - the proper punishment would have been to allow Dion Phaneuf an instigator-free beat down, and the refs are only to step in when Avery is unconscious and laying in a pool of blood. That's exactly what that piece of garbage deserves.

I heard the audio...this was totally scripted, it was pretty much all he said, and he was mostly just trying to get a rise out of people.

The best thing to do is ignore this kind of behaviour...

lol he is extremely good at getting under the skin of whomever he is playing and now he is doing it to fans. He is that type of goon you hate unless he is on your team.

I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.
