Sean Avery Apologizes!

This just in from Sean Avery, via his L.A.-based publicist, concerning the comments that got him indefinitely banned, at least till his meeting with National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman tomorrow:

"I would like to sincerely apologize for my off-color remarks to the press yesterday from Calgary. I should not have made those comments and I recognize that they were inappropriate. It was a bad attempt to build excitement for the game, but I am now acutely aware of how hurtful my actions were. I caused unnecessary embarrassment to my peers as well as people I have been close with in the past. I apologize for offending the great fans of the NHL, the Commissioner, my teammates, my coaching staff and the Dallas Stars Management and Ownership. As many of you know, I like to mix it up on and off the ice from time to time, but understand that this time I took it too far."
You read it here first. Because Unfair Park doesn't offer sloppy seconds. --Robert Wilonsky

Update: Seems the rest of the Dallas Stars, on the other hand, are not terribly interested in listening to or accepting Avery's apologies.
