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

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
