Deep-Sixed: Sean Avery Suspension Set By Commish

by at . Comments

Notorious hockey motormouth and off-ice "player" Sean Avery's suspension has been officially set at six games by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

The Dallas Stars forward already served two games since he was indefinitely banned Tuesday for calling Elisha Cuthbert his sloppy seconds, in what the league called "inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game."

Bettman's ruling was announced on the NHL website Friday, one day after a three-hour hearing was held regarding the issue at the league's Manhattan office.

Avery used the crude but still somewhat funny expression in Calgary, Alberta, while speaking to reporters to describe his former girlfriend, Cuthbert, who is now dating another hockey player, the Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf.

He later apologized without mentioning either by name.

NOT A "SLOPPY" DRESSER: With nothing to do for his team's next six games, the Dallas Stars' Sean Avery is free to indulge in his other passion: fashion.
