Having cleared waivers, Sean Avery was on his way to Hartford, to play for the New York Rangers’ AHL affiliate Hartford, but could soon be headed all the way to Russia, according to ESPNNewYork.com.
Wherever he goes, Avery has made a commitment to “work his tail off,” his agent, Pat Morris, told the website.
After getting waived twice this year by the New York Rangers, Avery could consider the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia, Morris, told the website.
There are teams in the KHL who have interest in Avery, according to the report.
Another potential option is a trade.
Avery had not played for the past nine games when the Rangers waived him Friday.
“This team is getting healthier, so it comes down to a numbers game,” coach John Tortorella told reporters of the move.
