Now Former Ranger Sean Avery “Retired” From Hockey on a Web-Only Bravo Show While Seated Next to Nicole Richie

Sean Avery, who was let go by the Rangers last week, made his hockey intentions clear on What Happens Live’s web-only aftershow last night. [via Puck Daddy]

Avery: I am officially retired. I threw my skates in the Hudson. [points to Nicole Richie] It’s the river out here… 

Nicole Richie: I thought you meant Kate Hudson.


This is exactly the way I would have imagined Sean Avery’s illustrious career coming to an end: by announcing his “retirement” on a web-only offering of a women’s television network with a flamboyant host and Nicole Richie. Really, I couldn’t have imagined it any other way. 

The funny thing is, Avery didn’t really retire… he was more or less fired by the Rangers and their entire organization. And, sadly, he didn’t throw his skates in the Hudson, either. His agent said that part was a joke. But Avery is finished… when he's done collecting a check from the Rangers.

    Is this Sports news worthy enough to steal from Puck Daddy?

    Holgram & Eddie Boy Snider should talk Avery out of retirment & sign him for the stretch run. He’s got that mad dawg in him that the flyers are lacking

    what a shame

  • Hot Bud March 13, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Snider is way too cheap to sign him

  • Captain Jack March 13, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    I agree. Bring Avery in. They need his toughness. But I guarantee that cheap ass Snider won’t do it.
