Other players have been suspended for retaliating against Avery, including Chicago's Ben Eager getting a three-game suspension for swinging his stick at Avery.However, this is the first time in Avery's seven-year career that the NHL has taken him off the ice."Maybe they decided that this one crossed the line further than all the others," said Stars co-general manager Brett Hull, who played with Avery in Detroit several years ago and was a driving force in signing him."More than anything, he's let his teammates down. "It's basically a fundamental -- you don't embarrass the team and you carry yourself with class and good character.
When told there was, he said, "I'm just going to say one thing.""I'm really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada," the Ontario native said.DALLAS -- Of all the cajoling, snide remarks and other stunts Sean Avery pulled on the way to becoming the biggest pest in hockey, never had he gone so far that the NHL believed it had to suspend him -- until Tuesday.Avery was punished indefinitely by commissioner Gary Bettman for using a crude term about his former girlfriends now dating other hockey players."You know, the show continues."Avery broke into the NHL in 2001-02 with Detroit.He was traded to the Kings during the following season, then was sent to the Rangers in 2007, with his arrival sparking New York's playoff run.It's a slap in the face."Dallas will play at Edmonton on Wednesday, again without Avery."Sean crossed that line," Stars coach Dave Tippett said. We've always professed that there is nobody that's ever bigger than our group or bigger than the team."Sean said something that just doesn't paint our organization in a good light, and appropriate steps are being taken."Despite his tough-guy image in his job, Avery has cultivated another image in his private life: fashionista.
He's pursued his interest in the fashion world by interning with Vogue magazine.
He's not only often called the most hated player in the NHL, he loves hearing it."I like to push it to the edge, no doubt about it," Avery said this summer, after signing a $15.5 million, four-year deal with the Stars. The next day, the league put in the so-called "Avery Rule" to prohibit such shenanigans.
Avery has been fined by the league and was once suspended by the Los Angeles Kings.
He's broken into pop culture through appearances on MTV and in tabloid gossip columns; he also grabbed a spot on People's "Sexiest Scars" list in 2007 for a gash on his lip.
The Stars signed him in hopes that his grittiness would boost last season's Western Conference finalists.
Instead, the injury-riddled Stars have only 22 points, tied for the fewest in the Western Conference and near the bottom of the NHL. He also had three goals and seven assists."It's disappointing," Stars co-general manager Les Jackson said. I feel bad for Brett, because he put his total trust in Sean, and Sean hasn't respected the league, the game, the Dallas Stars, Mr. He hasn't represented anybody professionally."Avery and Iginla were to meet on the ice for the first time since Avery told ESPN "the NHL does a terrible job of marketing" by not promoting its "villains," and that "nobody cares about Jarome Iginla and guys like that, they're just not exciting enough."The Stars and Flames meet three more times. 3 in Dallas; the Stars return to Calgary on March 18."He made stupid comments and it bit him," said Flames forward Craig Conroy, Avery's former teammate with the Kings. The league didn't think it was funny, the Dallas Stars didn't think it was funny and nobody thought it was funny."His current teammates were in the locker room when Avery spoke Tuesday, but didn't necessarily hear his interview.
