Sean Avery, New York Rangers Part Ways, According To Report

Sean Avery has had a tumultuous 2011-12 season. Twice placed on waivers by the New York Rangers and never picked up by another team, Avery was spending time with the Rangers' AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale. Now it appears as though the Whale no longer requires his services, effectively ending Avery's time with New York.

Katie Strang at ESPN New York reports that the Whale has informed Avery that he will not be placed on their postseason roster. The Connecticut team told Avery that he is no longer required to report, either for practices or for games. He has not appeared in a game for the Whale since Jan. 27.

Avery is currently in the final year of a four-year contract with the Rangers.
