Sean Avery Suspended From the NHL Indefinitely!

| Filed under: Zportz


Who knew the National Hockey League was so strict???? And lame!

The NHL has suspended Dallas Stars' winger Sean Avery indefinitely due to some remarks he made before Tuesday's game agaist the Calgary Flames.

Avery is being suspended for talking smack about the Flames' Dion Phaneuf.

So, what did he say that caused Avery to get suspended indefinitely? Seems kind of childish to us to penalize someone for shit-talking.

Avery told TSN on camera that, "I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada. 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. Enjoy the game tonight."


Turns out Phaneuf is dating Avery's ex-girlfriend, some D-list wactress named Elisha Cuthbert. We actually thought his comments were HIGHlarious.

Apparently the league's suspension is legal under Article 6 of the NHL Constitution. It allows for suspension due to any conduct "detrimental to the League or game of hockey."

This coming from a game where players are known to knock other player's teeth out????

Seriously, when did hockey get all uptight?

As for Avery, he'll be meeting with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman before a final decision is made on his suspension.

What do U think of the NHL's decision to suspense Avery????

    That is such bull. He is amazing and beautiful. I effing love this guy. Honestly, dead serious, my crush. He was just saying the truth, cuthbert's gross.

  5. 5

    This is utter BULLSHIT! Todd Bertuzzi nearly killed Steve Moore, ENDED the man's career and the lot of shit is STILL playing! The NHL SUCKS!

  6. 6

    He should get a slap on the wrist and they should be done with it. Just fine him . . .

  7. 7

    I think he sould be smarter that that. I must still be in love.

  8. 8

    Wow, a fine, maybe, but that indefinite suspension and there was no crime committed??? that is ridiculous! NHL get a life, that comment was hella funny!

  9. 9

    That's a little over the top, don't you think? I mean, it IS hockey like you said…teeth get knocked out and there's fights at nearly every game, but you have to suspend someone indefinitely for freedom of speech? So what if it was a public statement. Damn.

  10. 10

    "some actress"? I hope you're kidding. I love her.

  11. 11

    I'd fuck some sense into him

  12. 12

    Totally sean avery!! He rocks! The NHL is bush! Lighten up

  13. 13

    Sean Avery is a giant douche… He deserves this. I hope he gets kicked out of the league. I guess its a good thing that he had that Vogue Internship over the summer, you know, something to fall back on.

  14. 14

    This is ridiculous! It's o.k. for them to beat each other up during a game but not o.k. to say some words!

  15. 15

    The NHL has just been waiting for Avery to do or say something so they could suspend him. I do think they are being way too harsh for what he said. Sure suspend him for the game against the Flames but indefinately? That's just crazy! I'm sure they'll make him issue an apology etc then they'll reinstate him but this is definitely not the smartest thing the NHL has done.

  16. 16

    yeah I love Elisha Cuthbert - and she's fucking hot! she was on like 4 seasons of 24!

  17. 17

    thats bull shit!

  18. 18

    I like Elisha Cuthbert. She was in The Girl Next Door and 24. I wouldn't consider her D-list

  19. SusyQ says – reply to this


    If it were anyone else not much would have been done..because of his well known arrogance, shitty attitude and disrespect towards others in the league, im not surprised this happened..he is an immaure goof who does not even deserve to be in the league..go back to the minor league where you belong Avery

  20. 20

    Seperated at birth him and K-Fed. They so look alike.

  21. 21

    i think you should quit commenting on issues in sport when you have no idea what you're talking about

  22. 22

    Avery's ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert, is dating Calgary defensman Dion Phaneuf and had been romantically linked to Mike Komisarek of the Canadiens. Avery also dated model and actress Rachel Hunter, the girlfriend of Kings center Jarrett Stoll.

  23. 23

    loves it! avery is the biggest d-bag in the world. besides, the nhl is probably only going to suspend him for the one game against calgary so that dion doesn't have the chance to demolish him! my only question is did avery date the slutbag before or after comrie?

  24. 24

    It's about fucking time!!!! In the past he's also made negative comments about Blake playing with leukemia…seriously he's the biggest douche EVER!!!!!

  25. sushi says – reply to this


    Who the fuck cares. The guy is a dick and a homo.

  26. 26

    Well, since Canadians are fucking idiots, I'd say he got what he deserves. The trash talking was just funny though! LOL

  27. 27

    the suspension is bull, who cares if he calls his ex girlfriend a slut??!!

  28. 28

    This guys a douche! he got involved in a pre-game brawl once with toronto maple leaf forward jeff blake by mocking the fact he went through cancer treatment. Someone should take his knees out.

  29. 29

    He's such an asshole and a dirty player that they are probably looking for a reason to get rid of him. He makes the game (and Canadians) look bad, honestly!! Such a DOUCHE! He'll be massacred when he steps on the ice either way. Everyone in the NHL hates him, and so do hockey fans. I hope he never comes back. ASSHOLE!!

  30. 30

    Why would the NHL suspend for FREEDOM OF SPEECH? Not Avery's fault he get's the ladies. Total B.S.

  31. 31

    UGh! Im so happy he got kicked out. He is a dirty player and was just so annoying. The NHL was tired of his bs and he was the most hated NHL player ever! It was a little too rough but he gave the NHL reasons prior to this one.

  32. 32

    Perez!!! You obviously do not watch hockey at all, so why post about it?
    Avery is an absolute DICK-HEAD. He is a dirty player who takes cheap shots on anyone and everyone. The Dallas players did not even want Avery on their team, it was all the coach's decision. He is a complete douche, and it serves him right for being suspended. His comment showed bad sportsmanship, and utter douchmanship.
    It is painfully obvious that you know nothing about hockey, and have probably never even seen a Dallas game. So stop forming an opinion on something you know nothing about.

  33. 33

    oh for the love of god!!! now you are reporting on sports????????


  34. 34

    Re: Wiseone2980 – I totally agree with you..He's a crazy Avery..This should have done this earlier with all the comments he said in the past to other players….

  35. 35

    Thats some stupid shit right there!!!!

  36. 36

    Sean Avery has been making idiotic comments in the NHL for a long time, doing and saying things that are both ridiculous and tasteless. It's not this isolated incident that got him a suspension, it's his idiotic demeanor that has been carrying on for way too long.
    Maybe in America where they have NFL players who like to accidentally shoot themselves would you might let this go. But in the NHL, we like things a little more controlled and tasteful.

  37. 37

    I think you need to realize they aren't banning him from the league (he will probably only miss a handful of games). The reason it's "indefinitely" is because they are WAITING ON A HEARING. They don't have a standard for this type of thing so they can't just say it's this many games. They have to have a hearing and decide how much it's worth.

  38. 38

    what he did to martin brodeur was a little funny, but i do not like him. so i am glad.

  39. 39

    I think its a load of bollocks!

  40. 40

    Perez, you don't even understand how happy this will make A LOT of hockey fans. Sean Avery is a dangerous and dirty player, and it makes me laugh how THIS is what he finally gets suspended for. Seriously. I've seen this coming for so long, you have no idea.

  41. 41

    the whole kinder genteler NHL …FUCKING BLOWS !!! This is a sport where fighting is allowed and encouraged where young kids get drafted as much on talent as the ablity to swing and skate. NHL is hurting and they won't regain the fan base with all this touchy feely crap. BRING BACK THE BLOOD AND BRAWLING !!!

  42. Conda says – reply to this


    I wish that they allowed him to play the Calgary Flames, because Dion would have kicked the shit out of him. Make Avery have to get his mouth wired shut.

  43. 43

    Re: jelbean20

    Did she date Comrie?
    It's so weird, I've had a crush on Mikey since I was four years old. And now he's dating Hil?! So strange.

  44. 44

    Since when has Hockey become "High Brow"? Sounds like he was just calling him out for some good ole ass whooping in the rink.

  45. 45

    Oh man, I remember when Elisha Cuthbert was on POPULAR MECHANICS FOR KIDS!! bahah and now she is causing people to lose their jobs, betch.

    AS for this, i think it is dumb, he made a comment about a girlfriend, who cares! Its not like he said something racist (which players have been knowing to do and not get kicked out of the league) SO LAMEE

  46. 46

    That is utterly ridiculous. It didn't even have anything to DO with hockey.

  47. 47

    Thats all he said, I thought it would be worse.

  48. 48

    Thank goodness is all I can say! Sean Avery is an ASSHOLE and he should have been booted a LONG time ago. This is one more thing in a long line of trash talking and dirty playing. I'm all for doing what you can to win and chirpy players…Jarkko Ruutu is one of my favourites (he's got an infectious grin) but even he knows when it's too far. Sean needs to go!!! And Jordin Tootoo. He's dirty too.

  49. 49

    Re: Conda
    I agree!!!!

  50. MP says – reply to this


    A little harsh, but his comments were classless.

  51. 51

    Uh, this is the same racist asshole that calls black players "monkies" on ice. Sean Avery is a loser. Big time. He shouldn't even be allowed in the NHL. They're talking every opportunity to discipline him.
    And for the record, Bertuzzi was suspended for a really long time. He also went to court for his actions.

  52. 52

    This isn't the first time for this asshole. I'm a HUGE hockey fan, let me tell you a few things about Avery.
    He's a racist and a homophobe. On more than one occasion he has been caught by "on-ice" mics using racial and homophobic comments to get under opponents skin.
    His teamates hate him. Look at how many teams he's played for, he gets traded almost every season because his teamates realize what cocksucker he really is.
    He's not that good at the game. His +/- is down every year and he cares more about being in the media than he does about being on the ice.
    He's a chauvinist pig. What a classy guy, he refers to ex-girlfreinds as "sloppy seconds"? WTF?

  53. 53

    he used to be a ranger… he is no longer a ranger… i don't give a crap what they do to him. as long as my blue shirts are good, i'm good.

  54. 54

    He should have been suspended for his behaviour against Martin Brodeur in the playoffs last year. It was stupid to suspend him for this comment, at the end of the day. He dives and takes cheap shots, Avery is a reminder of the goon show. I won't miss him, but I would rather he got what he deserved for his actions, not for making a lame crack about a puck bunny actress.

  55. Aj20 says – reply to this


    what is Sean Avery complianing about hes dating Calvin Klein's ex-wife, Kelly Klein, 51 years old.

  56. 56

    Good riddance. Avery has caused too much shit in the NHL for too long… dirty player… dirty mouth.

    Now he can focus more on his "promising fashion" career.

  57. 57

    All i have to say is FINALLY! He totally deserves to be suspended indefinitely! He's pretty much the most hated player in the NHL. He's such a douche, not even his own team mates want him on the team. He deserves it

  58. 58

    I think if you don't watch hockey and no fuck all about the NHL you shouldn't really comment!
    If you are a fan of the game you know that Avery is a idiot and this is long long long overdue!

  59. 59

    I think it's hilarious, but slightly inappropriate in that venue. He could have saved it for a magazine interview or maybe an intermission interview during the game, but being televised, they had to put their foot down and make it go all the way to the floor.
    I would venture a guess that he'll get a stern lecture, a stiff fine and probation. If they do anything more, I'll pitch a MAJOR FIT!!!! They let that scumbag Todd Bertuzzi back in the league after he almost killed a man being a coward!!
    Sean Avery spoke words, Todd Bertuzzi acted out of rage.

  60. 60

    Good. FINALLY! Karma's a bitch and it finally caught up with him for all the shit's he's said and done to hockey players. And whatever, I don't care what he did. I'm glad he got suspended indefinitely. He's a douchebag that needs to be put in his place.
    EIther way, Cuthbert is a puck bunny anyway. She's dated like 3 NHL players already.

  61. 61

    Not that I'm a fan of hockey, but I am Canadian and I know that the NHL holds players to a high standard of behavior off the ice. The game is the game. Real life is something else. Mr. Avery seems to disregard this standard regularily while most players are able to contain themselves. I almost think the decision to suspend him is based on acculative evidence of his disrespect for NHL standards.

  62. 62

    Sean Avery thinks he's all that just cuz he works in the fashion biz.
    He is probably the most self obsessed guys in the NHL. Hope he gets
    the beats on the ice. Good for Elisha, stupid blonde slut, Dionne isn't even

  63. 63

    Good for them. He's an ass. He obviously didn't think she was 'sloppy seconds' when he had her. I'm sure she wasn't a virgin when they met. He's just a sore loser. Regardless of what kind a woman she is, he should keep his mouth close about her and act like someone with some class.

  64. 64

    I am happy he is suspended but if he comes back he will probably just go back to being a giant douche, as he always is, most people do not change. I hope that he gets the shit beat out of him one of these days…he deserves it. And for Perez, keep reporting on hockey when you want…it just makes hockey fans like me enjoy your blog even more!!

  65. 65

    okay the NHL is effing ridiculous if they are going to suspend him for that… wow.

  66. 66

    Re: d_ford
    Why the hell do people hate Jordin for? just cuz he checks all the time…that's what the coaches tell him to do. you racist!!

  67. 67

    Don't care. He looks kind of cute though.

  68. 68

    I say he should save that shit for the locker room or the ice, but a suspension is a little rough. A warning would be sufficient for a first time offender.

  69. 69

    tht fag deserved it……ugh i like hate him he shouldnt play in the nhl everyone hates him he deserves this shiit

  70. 70

    Great News!!! This guy Avery is such a dick and faggo "fashionista." He's kind of a joke to the people who work in the ny nightclub scene. Ive heard some funny stories about what a douche he was from friends who work at Beatrice.
    One of em told me he also likes to suckle the cockel a little bit discretely.

  71. 71


  72. 72

    It's dumb to suspend him. But what he said was really tacky. He's a good looking, pro hockey player. Why is he so bitter?

  73. 73

    He was suspended because hockey is a game for gentleman there are SO many un-told rules of hockey such as not using Gretzky's #99 or being sure the captains shake hands with the other captains and coaches and being respectful to the other goalie no snow in the face no hacking his gloves he has been pushing the boundaries of hockey ever since hes been in the league

  74. 74

    Sean Avery is a major J.A. It may not warrant a suspension but he deserves what he gets. This guy has no class!!!!!!!!!!

  75. 75

    Re: Sweetpiece! – you'd be that fucking stupid…..kinda cute…….nutty lefter……..

  76. 76

    If anybody on here knew ANYTHING about the NHL and Sean Avery, you would know that he's been warned about things like this and how the next time he made an inappropriate comment to the media he would be suspended!!! Sean Avery may be a skilled hockey player, but he's a trouble maker and he's obviously proven that time and time again!!!!!!!!!!!!

  77. 77

    They should let them settle it on the ice…with gloves off…A fine maybe, but an indefinite suspension is ridiculous…

  78. 78

    Remember when Elisha Cuthbert was on "Popular Mechanics For Kids"??? Gawd, she's gotten skanky since then…

    I do think the suspension is a bit of an overreaction though… :S

  79. Synik says – reply to this


    Avery's a douchebag. It's one thing to talk trash to another league member, but it's quite another thing to insult a woman by calling her sloppy seconds for no reason other than she had the bad taste to date this jerk. The way he diminished her just to make a cheap point is just plain nasty. He got just what he deserved by being suspended. Personally, I think Elisha should sue him for slander.

  80. 80

    This is not the first time Avery has run his mouth off. Last year be started a fight before a game in Toronto because he was talking shit about Blake who had cancer. He's a shit disturber and a goon. If he is going to play in the NHL he should learn how to be a decent human being first!

  81. 81

    He is a menace to the game of hockey. He hides his lack of skill by being the villain of the sport. It's not right. No sport should be played like he plays it. And most of the reason they suspended him was because they didn't want him to get a beat down on the ice tonight. Phenauf is one of the hardest hits in the league. he would had killed avery.

  82. 82

    The NHL lost out on some serious ratings tonight. They're struggling to market the sport in the United States because they're so damn elitist about it. I know I would've tuned into the game just to see if anything happened, but now, nope. Gary Bettman needs to get a clue and follow Avery's advice: controversy sells. Avery is probably the best thing to happen to the NHL's marketability in years. No one gives a shit how "down to earth" and talented Sidney Crosby is because he's completely devoid of personality. Avery is a douche but some of the most well known players are.

    He'll miss tonight's game and that's it. The only reason they called in indefinitely is because there's no precedent for this because its ridiculous. Its not like he called Phaneuf's mother a whore or something. Give me a break.

  83. 83

    sean avery is such a douche bag. if anyone pays attention to hockey you'd know how many times he's acted like an ass. he deserves what he got.

  84. 84

    avery is the biggest fucking douche bag in the game of hockey
    he says rude comments, makes illegal moves, and isn't even talented
    half of you idiots have no idea what hockeys about
    i dont think he should get suspended for this but everything else hes done, being a fucking prick and embarrassing hockey fans everywhere, sure as hell led up to this

  85. 85

    Re: ciao bella03 – Jordin Tootoo has been suspended and reprimanded for dirty hits that have seriously injured players. In no way shape or form does his ethnicity factor in to why I don't like him. I just don't like dirty players. As someone who has three First Nations cousins, I am happy to see that their are Inuit and First Nations players in the NHL. I really am surprised that someone could pull out of my original comment that I was being racist. The comments and tactics of Sean Avery, and others like him, have no place in hockey.

  86. 86

    say what you will about Avery, there will always be a place for asshole players like him - just ask Matthew Barnaby, Ulf Samuelsson, Jari Kurri, Ken Linesman etc etc etc
    that being said, it was a fuckin funny crack

  87. 87

    Re: GatorTina – btw hes not a first time offender hes been warned
    this is worse then politics theres more behind one call hes done a lot of other shit too

  88. 88

    Totally ridiuculous!! He should be playing.

  89. 89

    You forgot to mention that the team's owner said: "Had the league not have suspended him, the Dallas Stars would have. This organization will not tolerate such behaviour, especially from a member of our hockey team. We hold our team to a higher standard and will continue to do so." (tsn.ca)

    And, as a hockey fan, I think he deserve it. It's about time that he gets suspended for his words, cuz it's not the first time that Avery makes stupid comments about other players and their personnal life.

  90. 90

    Avery is a dick! I'm totally glad he got suspended. The NHL expects the players to conduct themselves in a specific manner when representing the NHL in public.

  91. 91


  92. 92

    Avery is a class A asshole. This guy is a punk and every hockey fan knows it. He is in love with himself and is not a team player. That is why he never spends much time with one team; he is constantly traded because his fellow players think he is a fuck head and that he is a major distraction.

  93. 93

    The guy is obviously a douche bag…just another idiot looking for some attention It is completely childish and soooo not over his ex..

  94. 94

    avery is a serious d bag. he's had this coming for while now. he is probably the least popular guy in the NHL. It's well known hes hated by most NHL players especially his teammates…..

  95. 95

    There's a difference between trash talking on the ice, which many players do, to him making a calculated effort to comment to the media. That's gutless and classless. Real hockey players leave the trash on the ice, douches like spew trash to the media. It says something when your own team and team mates don't back you up.

  96. 96

    It's not that he said that, it's because he's just a dick in general and nobody likes him.

  97. 97

    Send him to my room…I will punish him.

  98. 98

    Bullshit, Perez. The guy wanted attention, and he got it. He should have kept his comments to himself and realized that his association with a professional sport requires him to be mindful of that when he makes public statements. I also object to the term "sloppy seconds." Unless you end up with your first and only love, and you are also that person's first and only love, EVERYONE is technically someone else's "sloppy seconds." He should have had some class and STFU.

  99. 99

    the only reason i'm disappointed in this suspension, is cause i wanted to see avery get laid the fuck out tonight.
    & that's probably one of the reasons the NHL is taking this so seriously.. because this guy WILL get his shit wrecked sooner or later.
    i fucking hate this guy, biggest prick in the NHL.
    his teammates don't even like him.
    hockey is still a physical game (it's not lame), & if he's going to make these comments make them on the ice.
    also, he shouldn't bring a third party into it.
    he's an unclassy fuck, and i cannot wait to see the day someone puts him in his place and shuts him right up.

  100. 100

    While his quote wasn't that big of a deal, it was more of a case of the straw that finally broke the camel's back. Avery deliberately said that in front of cameras in order to get attention, and THAT is why it's labelled as being a detriment to the league/hockey. He's done other douchebag-y things before — he made fun of another hockey player for having CANCER, and used racial and homophobic slurs — but at least that stayed on the ice. This time, he went too far by putting it into the public. The NHL holds its players to high standards and want them to show respect for the game, they don't want douchebags to get attention about ex-girlfriends of all things. He's selfish and isn't fit to play in the league, his own teammates hate him.
