After a two-week stint in behavioural therapy, Avery started meditation. He also got a new tattoo. “You used to be alright, what happened,” lyrics from a Radiohead song, now adorn his arm. But seriously, what happened?
“I think that any time you say something that’s hurtful towards somebody you’re always going to regret that,” Avery said. “If I’ve said something that’s done that, then I don’t feel good about it. Regrets are tough words because you know you did it. You kind of have to deal with what you’ve done.”
Following his suspension, the Dallas Stars—Avery’s team at the time—didn’t want anything to do with him. He was eventually sought out by the Rangers, for whom he played before going to Dallas.
Avery, for his part, seems to have found his niche in the Big Apple, a city as flamboyant as his personality.
“I just blend in with the city and its people,” he said.
