The NHL has just announced that Sean Avery will serve a six-game suspension, without pay, for off-ice comemnts made to the media before the Dallas/Calgary game on December 2nd. Having already served two games, he will be able to return to the ice on December 16th when the Stars face the Phoenix Coyotes, pending any further punishment from his current team.
In addition, Avery has agreed to an anger-managment evaluation. Hmmm...interesting.
I don't find this suspension appropriate, but Mr. Bettman has ruled. If there is one thing for sure, this is not the last of Sean Avery. As they say, "Nobody puts baby in a corner.."
