The move was done to bring him up as a replacement for the injured Mike Rupp.
He cleared waivers and re-joined the Rangers for their November 5 game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Sean Christopher Avery (born April 10, 1980) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player.
Avery did not think Nicole Brown was glamorous enough to be a "girlfriend of a hockey player in Hollywood." Brown admits the bullying might have affected him in ways that he did not realize.
After joining the Rangers, he scored 20 points in 29 games to help the team complete a 17–4–6 end-of-season run to qualify for the playoffs.
He was left off the Whale's Clear Day list of players eligible to play for the remainder of the AHL season submitted on March 5, and told to no longer report to games or practices.
Over the course of his hockey career, Avery was involved in a number of controversies and fined by the NHL on numerous occasions.
On August 1, 2007, Avery, as a restricted free agent, earned an arbitration award of $1.9 million for the 2007–08 season, which the Rangers accepted, keeping him with the team for at least another year.
He had been a roommate of the Stars' co-general manager Brett Hull when the two played for the Red Wings.After clearing waivers on February 9, 2009, Avery was assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers' AHL affiliate, although he remained a member of the Stars organization (that season, the Stars had no AHL affiliate).On October 31, 2011, the Rangers placed Avery on 24-hour re-entry waivers.Hull thought the Stars needed more fire and emotion on the ice, and felt Avery would fit the bill.Avery scored 3 goals in 23 games before he and the team parted ways following his six-game suspension by the NHL in December 2008, due to controversial remarks made about fellow players.He is also known for his eclectic interests, having worked in fashion, most notably as an intern at Vogue magazine; as a model; and as a restaurateur.
