DALLAS (AP)—The NHL suspendedDallas StarsforwardSean Averyindefinitely Tuesday for making a crude reference to former girlfriends while talking with reporters.
Avery’s inflammatory comments came following a morning skate in Calgary, Alberta, where the Stars were to play the Flames on Tuesday night. He approached a group of reporters, asked if a camera was present, then said he wanted to say one thing: “I’m really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada,” he 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 (former girlfriends).”
He used a crass term to refer to ex-girlfriends now dating other people.
