Sean Avery spills the beans on new Rangers third jersey

Sep 17, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

New York Rangers agitator/fashion mogul Sean Avery had a surprise for everyone on his website blog recently. (Update: The post has been removed from his page. Apparently the Rangers didn’t care for this surprise).


Yes, that’s Avery posing seemingly awkwardly in a pair of glasses not seen since Buddy Holly’s days rocking out in the 1950s wearing what appears to be the New York Rangers third jersey. It also looks like they gave Avery a jersey that’s a size or two too big, but that’s beside the point. The question is, what do you make of the Rangers classicly-inspired new duds?

Many Rangers fans when they heard there would be a third jersey coming this year were hoping that their third jersey style featuring the bust from the Statue of Liberty might make a comeback, but it appears that’s not going to happen.

Our vote on this new one is somewhat indifferent. Nothing about this pops, but doing something that’s inspired by an old look is good by us. Count us in as bigger fans of Sean Avery’s glasses. Perhaps this will boost his rankings as one of the better-dressed players in the NHL. According to Michelle Kenneth, Avery could certainly use the help.

    This has ALWAYS been my FIRST jersey because of the NEW YORK on the chest, we were the first and as far as I’m concerned the ONLY New York Hockey Team!!! My personal digital reference to the fish mongers from LI… and the cows out west in the state.

    They should sell these for half price! Also the jersey fits him fine. These are edge jerseys and the size he is wearing is fit to him. Why would you mention it looks big????? You probably tuck it in to your jeans lol

    “It also looks like they gave Avery a jersey that’s a size or two too big, but that’s beside the point.”
    Or maybe it’s the PERFECT size… since you wear shoulder pads under your jersey when you play.
    ALL jerseys look huge when you wear them without pads. Ugh…
