NEW YORK (AP) -Sean Avery of the New York Rangers was out of the lineup for a preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings because of a knee injury sustained during the morning skate.

The injury to the agitating forward's right knee is not believed to be serious, but he was due to be examined by a second doctor - team physician and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andrew Feldman - at Madison Square Garden, where Monday night's game was being played.

Avery was seen by Dr. Anthony Maddalo, a team assistant physician, after he collided knee on knee with fellow Rangers forward Ryan Callahan on Monday morning. He was not given an MRI then.

"He banged up his knee but it's not serious," Rangers coach John Tortorella said before Avery was seen by the second doctor.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
