Avery scratched for "disciplinary reasons"

January, 13, 2012
Sean Avery was scratched for Friday's game between the American Hockey League's Connecticut Whale and Norfolk Admirals. According to the Rangers, Avery is sitting out for disciplinary reasons.

The controversial 31-year-old forward, who was waived by the Rangers for the second time this season December 30, has one goal in four games for the Whale this season.

According to a New York Post report earlier this week, there are two teams interested on claiming Avery on re-entry waivers although the Rangers have no immediate plans to put him on again.
