Sean Avery assigned to American Hockey League's Hartford Wolf Pack

DALLAS - Sean Avery's hockey career is about to resume in Hartford.

The Dallas Stars have assigned him to the American Hockey League's Hartford Wolf Pack. Avery hasn't appeared in a game since being suspended by the NHL in December after making his infamous remark about other hockey players dating his former girlfriends.

He recently completed treatment in the NHL/NHLPA counselling program and was cleared from that over the weekend.

The Stars don't currently have an AHL affiliate and could have sent him to any willing team.

Hartford is affiliated with the New York Rangers, the NHL team Avery played for prior to signing a free-agent contract with the Stars over the summer.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
