In the aftermath of his douchebaggery, the Dallas Stars have announced that Sean Avery will not be returning to their team this season.

“Sean needs to focus on his own well-being while the Stars hockey team must focus on playing hockey and competing for a playoff spot,” said the Stars Co-General Manager Brett Hull said in a statement. “Everyone understands that Sean will not return to the Dallas Stars. We all need to move forward.”

The Stars said they would not seek to challenge Avery’s contract under the conduct clause included in the Standard Player’s Contract. In Paragraph 2 of the contract (e), NHL players are told to “refrain from conduct detrimental to the best interest of the Club, the League or professional hockey generally.”

Dallas will continue to honour Avery’s contract while exploring options for his future. “We do care about Sean and want what is best for him,” said Hull. “We’ve agreed to do what we can to help find him a place to play hockey once he addresses his personal issues.”

“This is a situation where he’s painted our organization with a brush nobody wants to be painted with,” said Dave Tippett, the Stars’ coach. “I know from a personal standpoint, that’s not the way I want to be perceived as an organization and as a team.”

Maybe Sean can beg Anna Wintour for his Vogue “internship” back?
