The NHL suspended Dallas Stars center Sean Avery for “inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game.”
“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.” – Sean Avery
Avery, who used to date actress Elisha Cuthbert (24, The Girl Next Door), is furious that his ex-girlfriend is now dating Flames defensman Dion Phaneuf. Avery also dated actress Rachel Hunter, who is now the fiancée of Los Angeles center Jarrett Stoll.
Reaction: Who knew the NHL was so dramatic? Saying that comment to teammates is one thing, but announcing it to the press? Pretty stupid. How long is he going to be suspended though? 10 games?
