New York, November 1, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Sean Avery has been recalled from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Avery, 31, tallied a goal in his season debut with Connecticut on October 28 at Adirondack after missing the first seven games of the season due to a shoulder injury.  He has registered one goal, along with seven penalty minutes and 11 shots on goal in two games this season.  Avery returns to the Rangers where he has registered 42 goals and 78 assists for 120 points, along with 580 penalty minutes in 249 games over five seasons.  The Rangers have posted a record of 129-89-31 with him in the lineup since originally being acquired on February 5, 2007.

The Pickering, Ontario native was acquired by the Rangers with John Seymour from Los Angeles, in exchange for Jason Ward, Marc-Andre Cliché and Jan Marek on February 5, 2007.  New York re-acquired Avery on March 3, 2009, claiming him off re-entry waivers from Dallas.  He was originally signed as a free agent by Detroit on September 21, 1999.

The Rangers practice schedule for tomorrow, November 2, is 11:00 a.m. at the MSG Training Center.
