Larry Brooks of the New York Post has confirmed that the New York Rangers will be placing forward Sean Avery on re-entry waivers tomorrow. All 29 other teams will have an opportunity to claim Sean over a 24-hour period, but if he clears as expected, he would be eligible to play Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks.
I am very surprised to see Avery being recalled after everything he and the organization have went through over the past month. There have been few details revealed about the situation, but I get the sense that this move is management-induced, or in other words, not being made by the coaching staff.
I give the fans credit here. You guys spoke and they listened.
