Former New York Rangers heel Sean Avery is a noted jerk. Avery was voted one of the most hated men in hockey by the players. He started an infamous beef with Martin Brodeur over commenting on Brodeur’s 2003 affair, calling the Hall of Fame goaltender a “homewrecker.”
Avery also got a rule in the rulebook named after him by facing Brodeur and waving his stick in his face during a powerplay.
So it’s no surprise that Avery had some controversial words for Islanders fans after their treatment of former captain John Tavares, including burning jerseys and throwing snakes on the ice.
Avery addressed Islanders fans in his Instagram story.
