New York Rangers hockey star Sean Avery was released from the hospital Sunday after lacerating his spleen during a game Tuesday night.

“He still needs a lot of rest,” his rep says, “and will be going for checkups with his doctors over the next few days.”

But bedrest isn’t the only thing on his agenda: Avery is keeping his prior commitment to attend one of New York City’s most exclusive social engagements of the year: Monday night’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala. Avery, who is set to begin an editorial internship with Vogue in a week, will be attending the gala as a guest of the magazine, donning an Alexander McQueen suit.

Avery’s injury has sidelined him for the remainder of the hockey season.


Sean Avery: Lacerated Clothes Horse April 30, 2008

Sitting on the SidelinesNew York Islander’s forward Sean Avery is out for the rest of the season with a lacerated spleen. I’m sure the team could have really used his help (ha!), being down 3 games to 0 in their playoff series. Earlier reports stated that the hockey goon had been admitted to a Manhattan hospital this morning after suffering a heart attack.

While I was searching online to see what the real story was, I came across some interesting information about Mr. Avery. I’ve known him as a dirty player who was once engaged to actress Elisha Cuthbert (perhaps while she was blindfolded during filming of Captivity).

Apparently, there is a lot more to this shallow man. Such as:

  • In April 2008 it was announcedthat Avery would be spending the summer off-season interning at Vogue magazine. According to one fashion report “Avery is a self-confessed clotheshorse who has been known to give girlfriends advice on how to dress, and in interviews has expressed a dream to become a fashion editor after his days on the ice”. Bet the guys in the locker room loved this one!
  • Someone at People magazine must have forgotten their glasses when they were looking at pics and decided that Avery should make the cut as one of the “Sexiest People Alive” in 2007. Click here for the video where he shows off his “sexy” scar and his “sensitive side”. Sexy? Sensitive? Seriously?
  • On April 14th, 2008, the NHL actually revised a rule in response to Avery’s less-than-stellar moves during a playoff game against the New Jersey Devils. “You can’t see because I am waving my stick in your face!” Nothing like having a long-standing rule changed since you came up with some childish behavior that was never written as not being allowed since the league assumed they were dealing with professionals, not preschoolers. His mom must be so proud!
