Reports: Rangers waive Avery again
New York Ranger forward Sean Avery is reportedly back on the waiver wire, just as he was prior to the start of the 2011-12 season.

According to a tweet from ESPNNewYork.com's Katie Strang, the Rangers waived Avery on Friday. TSN's Bob McKenzie confirmed the move on his Twitter account.

Avery hasn't played since Dec. 10, a total of nine straight games, and has played in only 15 games since he was recalled from Connecticut of the American Hockey League in early November. He has three goals, a plus-2 rating and 21 penalty minutes.

Avery was among the Rangers final cuts prior to their season-opener in Stockholm against Los Angeles. He cleared waivers and was assigned to Connecticut, but he was later recalled by the Rangers on Nov. 1. Avery had to clear re-entry waivers in order to return to the club.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
