NEW YORK (AP) -Dallas Stars agitator Sean Avery apologized Wednesday for comments about his former girlfriends that led to an indefinite NHL suspension.

"I would like to sincerely apologize for my off-color remarks to the press yesterday from Calgary," Avery said in a statement obtained by SportingNews.com.

"I should not have made those comments and I recognize that they were inappropriate. It was a bad attempt to build excitement for the game, but I am now acutely aware of how hurtful my actions were. I caused unnecessary embarrassment to my peers as well as people I have been close with in the past."
