Sean Christopher Avery (born April 10, 1980) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. During his career in the National Hockey League (NHL), he played left wing for the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers and Dallas Stars, gaining recognition for controversial and disrespectful behavior both on and off the ice. His agitating playing style led to multiple teams waiving him and even having a contract terminated without-pay. He led the league in penalty minutes twice, during the 2003-04 and 2005-06 NHL seasons. He is also known for having worked in fashion as an intern at Vogue magazine, a model, and as a former restaurateur.

After retiring in 2012, Avery focused full-time on working in the creative industry. However, his post-NHL career has seen many challenges and downward turns. He has been described as "...all smoke and mirrors. He doesn't have a lot of friends in any line of work," by a former teammate.[1]

Avery's memoir, Ice Capades: A Memoir of Fast Living and Tough Hockey, was published by Blue Rider Press in 2017. It is currently ranked #709,017 on Amazon.[2]

Early life

Avery was born in North York, Ontario,[3] the son of Al and Marlene Avery, both teachers.[4] He grew up in Pickering, Ontario,[5] where he attended Dunbarton High School.[6] He has a younger brother named Scott.[7]

Playing career

Junior league (1996-2000)

Prior to joining the NHL, Avery played for the Owen Sound Platers and the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).[8]

Detroit Red Wings (2001-2003)

Avery was signed by the Detroit Red Wings as a free agent in 1999. He played one final season in the OHL before turning professional in 2000 with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks of the American Hockey League (AHL). Avery first played in the NHL during the 2001-02 season, playing 36 games with the Red Wings and 36 in the minors. The Red Wings went on to win the Stanley Cup that season but Avery did not play in the playoffs nor did he play the required 41 games to get his name engraved on the Cup.

Midway through the 2002-03 season, Avery was traded to the Los Angeles Kings, along with defenseman Maxim Kuznetsov and two draft picks for Mathieu Schneider.[9] He finished the season with 15 points in 51 games.[10]

Los Angeles Kings and NHL lockout (2003-2007)

Avery with the Kings

In 2003-04, Avery played 76 games for the Kings, scoring 9 goals to go along with 19 assists. He also led the NHL in penalty minutes with 261.[10]

During the 2004-05 NHL lockout, Avery briefly played in the Finnish Elite League with the Lahti Pelicans, and in the United Hockey League for the Motor City Mechanics. Along with 149 penalty minutes in just 16 games, he tallied 26 points for the Mechanics, including two hat tricks, making him the first player in Mechanics history to record two hat tricks in one season. Several players spoke publicly of their dissatisfaction with the NHL Players' Association's leadership during the lockout, including Avery, who publicly blamed NHLPA president Bob Goodenow for wasting an entire season with a battle that alienated fans and yielded few results.[11]

Avery led the league in penalty minutes for the second consecutive season in 2005-06, with 257. With three games remaining, the Kings unofficially suspended Avery for the remainder of the season after he refused to do a drill in practice. Nevertheless, the team re-signed him to a one-year deal.[12]

During his time with the Kings, Avery has been said to have mocked Dustin Brown about his lisp. Former Kings' teammate Ian Laperrière said it "was bullying, like you might see in high school." But according to other players and coaches, Brown's lisp was not Avery's target, Brown's then girlfriend, now wife, Nicole was. Avery did not think Nicole Brown was glamorous enough to be a "girlfriend of a hockey player in Hollywood."[13]

New York Rangers (2007-2008)

Avery in 2007

On February 5, 2007, in the middle of the 2006-07 season, Avery was traded to the New York Rangers.[12] 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. On March 17, Avery recorded a single-game career-high four points (one goal and three assists) against the Boston Bruins in a 7-0 victory.[14] Avery played in his first career playoff game on April 12 against the Atlanta Thrashers, recording his first playoff points with a goal and an assist.[15]

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.[16]

On February 16, 2008, in a game against the Buffalo Sabres, Avery scored a goal 10 seconds into the game, setting a record for fastest goal scored by a Ranger on home ice.[17]

Dallas Stars (2008)

Avery signed a four-year, $15.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars on July 2, 2008.[18] He had been a roommate of the Stars' co-general manager Brett Hull when the two played for the Red Wings. Hull originally thought the Stars needed more fire and emotion on the ice. He felt Avery would fit the bill but later was described as feeling betrayed by Avery. Avery scored only 3 goals in 23 games for the Stars. In the first six months of the four-year contract, he was fired/released-without-pay by the team due to a six-game suspension by the NHL for controversial remarks made about fellow players.[19] The Stars placed Avery on waivers on February 7, 2009.[20][21]

Return to the Rangers (2009-2012)

Avery in the 2009 playoffs

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).[21][22] On March 2, Avery was placed on re-entry waivers by Dallas, and claimed by the Rangers the following day.[23] On January 5, 2010, in a game against the Stars, his former team, Avery recorded one goal and three assists.[24]

On October 4, 2011, the Rangers waived Avery. He later cleared waivers and re-joined the Rangers for their November 5 game against the Montreal Canadiens.[25]After being a healthy scratch for nine games, Avery was once again placed on waivers on December 30, 2011. Since no NHL team claimed him, he returned to the AHL's Connecticut Whale.[26] His last game played with the Whale was on January 27, 2012. 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.[27]

On March 12, 2012, Avery retired. He announced his retirement on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen.[28][29]

Controversies and bullying

Over the course of his hockey career, Avery was involved in a number of controversies that resulted in fines by the NHL on numerous occasions. He also has a long-documented history of bullying co-workers, support staff, and his own mother-in-law.[30]

The lack of respect for others started early in his career; Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said he unloaded Avery during the 2002-03 season because he did not live up to the standards of a NHL professional.[31] In Avery's memoir, "Ice Capades", he justifies his ways and responds to on-record comments that he was a bad teammate. His ghostwriter confirmed this by writting "The knock on me was that I was a "bad teammate". Did this mean that I stole other players' girlfriends? That I was an arrogant puck hog? That I put Tiger Balm in guys' jockstraps and thought it was the funniest thing ever when they tried to extinguish the three-alarm burning up the family jewels?".[32]

On-record, documented cases of bullying included star teammates such as Dustin Brown[33] and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Martin Brodeur.[34] According to former teammates, "He is all smoke and mirrors. He doesn't have a lot of friends in any line of work."[35]

Leukemia comment

In November 2007, Howard Berger, a reporter for Toronto radio station FAN 590 stated that an unnamed Rangers player had accused Avery of commenting about Toronto Maple Leafs player Jason Blake's battle with leukemia, prior to a pre-game confrontation between Avery and Toronto's Darcy Tucker.[36] Avery, who denied the allegation, received an NHL-maximum $2500 fine, and Tucker received a $1000 fine.[37]

The Avery Rule

Avery "screening" Brodeur

During Game 3 of the 2008 Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals against the New Jersey Devils, Avery turned his back on the play in order to face and screen Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur during a two-man advantage on the power play. He waved his hands and stick in front of Brodeur in an attempt to distract him and block his view. The puck was later cleared out of the Devils' zone but on the second Rangers offensive attack, Avery scored a power play goal.

Notable in this instance was that Avery had spent the initial part of the play facing Brodeur while ignoring the puck, with his back to the play (normally, the player screening the goaltender is facing the play). The following day, the NHL issued an interpretation of the league's unsportsmanlike conduct rule to cover actions such as the one employed by Avery, which would now result in a minor penalty.[38] This became known colloquially as "The Avery Rule".[39]

Avery's tactics during that series against the Devils earned multiple power plays, and he scored in each of the first three games. The Rangers managed a 4-1 series win.

Heckling incident

Avery during the 2010-11 season

On November 1, 2008, following a game with the Stars against the Boston Bruins, Avery was accused of shouting obscenities at a fan who had been heckling him during the game. A report of complaint was filed with the NHL, but no action was taken.[40]

"Sloppy seconds" comment

On December 2, 2008, prior to the Stars' morning skate in preparation for a game against the Calgary Flames, Avery approached the assembled reporters in the dressing room and stated, "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, but enjoy the game tonight." At the time, two of Avery's ex-girlfriends were dating fellow NHL players - actress Elisha Cuthbert was dating Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf, and model Rachel Hunter was dating Kings center Jarret Stoll.[40][41][42]

Within hours, the NHL suspended Avery indefinitely for "conduct detrimental to the league or the game of hockey". His comments were met with near-unanimous condemnation by the Stars organization, fellow players, and fans alike. Stars owner Tom Hicks said that the team would have suspended Avery had the NHL not acted first.[43] Avery apologized the next day, calling his actions "inappropriate" and "a bad attempt to build excitement for the game".[44]

On December 5, the NHL fixed Avery's suspension at six games, retroactive to the December 2 game against the Flames. He agreed to undergo anger management counseling due to what the NHL called unacceptable and antisocial behavior. Commissioner Gary Bettman noted that both he and league disciplinarian Colin Campbell had warned Avery several times before about his behavior.[42] On December 14, after the last game of Avery's suspension, the Stars announced that Avery would not return to the team. One factor in the Stars decision was that coach Dave Tippett and several of the players, including Mike Modano and Marty Turco, let it be known they weren't willing to take him back on the team. Tippett had warned Avery not to talk to the media about his former girlfriends, and was outraged when he did so.[45][46] According to TSN's James Duthie, Avery's teammates had soured on him not long after he arrived. The "sloppy seconds" incident was the last straw, and Hicks had been actively looking to cut ties with him while the suspension was underway.[47]

On October 10, 2015, Avery moved past his own previous views on "sloppy seconds" by marrying former Mark Sanchez girlfriend[48] Hilary Rhonda.

Tortorella feud

Prior to his second stint with the Rangers, Avery had been called out on numerous occasions by then TSN commentator, future Rangers coach and Stanley Cup winner John Tortorella, who is noted for his no-nonsense behavior with his players and the press. After rejoining the Rangers, Avery's relationship with Tortorella was uneasy, although in Avery's book he reports there were moments of mutual admiration. Nearly a year after Avery retired, on March 30, 2013, following the Rangers' second consecutive shutout loss, a tweet from Avery's Twitter account said of his former coach, "Fire this CLOWN, his players hate him and wont play for his BS."[49][50] On May 29, 2013, after the Rangers lost to the Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinals, Tortorella was fired.[51] Avery told the New York Post that he "had a huge smile" on his face after finding out that Tortorella was fired, adding, "It's not that I'm happy for myself. I'm happy for the Rangers and Ranger fans."[50]

Restraining order and other bullying incidents

In 2016, Avery was served with a restraining order for harassing his mother-in-law.[52] Beginning in summer of 2016, Avery "...was harassing her. They were running into each other, belonged to the same gym, and he'd issue profanities at her and make obscene gestures. He was driving in his car too close to her and scaring her."[53]

In late 2014, Avery left rehearsals of a Broadway production he was a part of early after growing agitated. The next day, Avery's behavior grew worse. According to witnesses, when a young assistant stage manager named Natalie asked the athlete-turned-actor if he wanted a slice of pizza, he said no, but somehow thought the assistant had called him an "a-hole." "It's a complete horror story ... Avery had a complete meltdown in rehearsals and quit. He pretty much snapped," witnesses told the New York Post.[54]


Lipman Agency

Upon retirement from the NHL in 2012, Avery began working at New York City-based advertising and creative agency Lipman. Avery was said to have "charmed (David) Lipman into giving him a position"[55] and was brought on as the chief strategic officer and helped develop strategies for the company including being showcased himself as a model. He also handled a range of assignments for Lipman's parent company, Revolate Holdings, a "failed brand marketing holding company that had stakes in a number of ventures".[56][57] During his time at Lipman, Avery was said to have been "...terrorizing everyone in the office."[58] According to former co-workers, "He will stop at nothing to get it done, even if there are casualties along the way. He creates conflict and pushes it too far."[59] However, in August of 2013 Lipman declared bankruptcy.[60] According to the New York Post, Avery was never paid $229,167 for his work[61]



In April 2008, it was announced that Avery would be spending the summer offseason interning at Vogue magazine.[62] In June 2008, Avery guest-edited, the website for Men's Vogue magazine.[63] His interest mainly resides with women's fashion; of men's fashion Avery has said, "You do suits and pants and that's about that. Women's clothes tell a story. That's what's interesting to me."[64]

In 2008, New Line Cinema put into development a film based on Avery's life, focusing on his status as a professional athlete with an active interest in fashion, including a summer internship at Vogue. Stan Chervin, who was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for Moneyball (2011), was hired to write the script.[65]

Avery had financial interest in two New York City restaurants in the early 2010s. In August 2013, the New York Post reported that Avery had sold his interests in both Warren 77 and Tiny's.[75] According to sources, "For the betterment of the business, they paid him to go away. He got bought out,".[76]


Same-sex marriage

In May 2011, Avery recorded a video for the New Yorkers for Marriage Equality campaign, in support of same-sex marriage.[77] In an interview with the New York Times, he stated, "I certainly have been surrounded by the gay community. And living in New York and when you live in L.A., you certainly have a lot of gay friends."[78] Avery also traveled to Albany, New York, to lobby politicians prior to the July 2011 legalization of same-sex marriage in New York State.[79][80]
