Sean Avery was anything but a choir boy in his 12-year NHL career. Before retiring in 2012, the former left winger for the Red Wings, Kings, Rangers, and Stars had been fined several times for being a perpetual agitator, both on and off the ice.
In 2007 while on the Rangers, Avery allegedly made an insensitive comment about Toronto Maple Leafs player Jason Blake’s battle with leukemia during a pre-game confrontation. Not funny.
The following year, during his stint on the Dallas Stars, Avery skated up to a group of reporters before a matchup with the Calgary Flames and said,
“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.”
Avery was speaking about Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf, who was dating Avery’s ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert. Ok, kind of funny.
In his fourth year of retirement, Avery has brought his dickish actions into the real world, indicative of this Snapchat story he posted that shows him heckling homeless men.
Waking up homeless dudes solely so you can patronize them is low-hanging fruit, bruh. Have a smidge of humility.
P.S. It’s confirmed. Chicks love douchebags.
