Is Sean Avery done with hockey?

The controversial forward told a live viewing audience during the online “After Show” segment of Bravo TV’s “Watch What Happens Live”, that he was calling it quits.

Avery’s announcement came after the show’s host, Andy Cohen, posed a viewer question to him regarding his future.

“Sean, what are your thoughts about your hockey future?” Cohen asked Avery.

The 31-year-old Avery lounged back in his chair and said: “I am officially retired; I threw my skates in the Hudson [River].”

Have to admit best response I heard to this news came from LHH:

I’m still waiting on confirmation from Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi and at least three Real Housewives before I believe it.

I didn’t realize he was only 31, I thought he was much older.
