Headline pretty much says it all. From the New York Post:

Sean Avery is joining the cast of “Dancing With the Stars,” sources exclusively tell Page Six.

The former Rangers star has been spotted working out in preparation for the show at the New York studio of Gwyneth Paltrow’s trainer Tracy Anderson.

The move will be Avery’s latest career change after working at high-fashion ad agency Lipman, which ran out of cash and closed last year.

Sources said the former NHL stud recently posted a video of himself online showing off some Anderson-inspired dance moves to Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” but the video was taken down.

If you want to hurl insults at me for posting this, and I’m sure you do, the comments section is this way ↓

    No, no insults. It is hockey-related news of a sort. Not saying it’s of a good sort perhaps, but hockey-related news nonetheless. Not every story has to be about what happened on the ice last night…

    “Dancing With The Third Rate Hockey Players”.

      Third rate player? I was never a Sean Avery fan, and for good reason he’ll never have to write a Hall of Fame induction speech, but he did play 580 NHL games and score 90 NHL goals, which is 580 more NHL games and 90 more NHL goals than the vast majority of guys who have ever tried playing the sport of hockey.

    So you decide to repost the NY Post’s story. Sounds like sloppy seconds to me.

    Avery is a first class douche. He’ll fit right in.

      • nothanksimdriving123 - Feb 27, 2014 at 2:42 PM

        Um, actually, he’s reportedly engaged to Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hilary Rhoda. But you were very close and we thank you for your input.

        sometimes its hard to accept, but major douchebags can get poon too.

        not gaining any credibility with posts like that.

      • jpelle82 - Feb 27, 2014 at 3:37 PM

        i’m not crazy, i knew i saw it somewhere–nhl.html

        obviously not true but that was the last thing i saw about him so thats what i ran with….

      Girls? Guy has been hanging with Michael Sam lately. Maybe that’s why he had such a pitiful showing at the combine.

    Hey Avery, toe pick!

  7. rangerfanbb - Feb 28, 2014 at 12:11 AM

    He is engaged to a model that was in SI! Give me a brake, he gave more effort on ice than 75% of the players Sather has brought in. Was he a pain in the ,ss, yes. You could never doubt his effort unlike a lot of overpaid losers Sather has brought to msg.
