#9 Sean Avery – This NHL bad boy has been surrounded by controversy his entire NHL career. My favorite Avery comment regarded his “sloppy seconds” about former girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert:
“I’m just going to say one thing. I’m really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada. I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about, but enjoy the game tonight.”
The NHL suspended Avery for his comments. Avery has also made controversial statements regarding race, leukemia, and has been called a bully by former teammates.
