and Henrik Lundqvist
are known around NHL circles for their fashion expertise, and on Thursday they were cited for their dressing habits by Forbes.com.
The site named the Rangers' pair to their list of the 15 best dressed athletes, where they join NBA stars Dwayne Wade and LeBron James, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and soccer superstar David Beckham.
"I'll put up the article in the locker room to feel good about myself," Lundqvist told TSN. "It's fun."
When asked to compare his style to Avery's, Lundqvist said his Swedish upbringing has a lot to do with his personal style, while saying Avery has his own distinct look.
"Maybe I'm a little bit more European in my style," said Lundqvist. "More tight-fitted jeans and shirts and boots. He's got good style, I have to give him that."
Avery famously had a summer internship with Vogue magazine in 2008, and also writes a style column for AskMen.com. He told People Magazine during his internship how much fun he had working in the fashion industry.
"I was surrounded by some of the greatest minds in American fashion and in the world," Avery said.
