There’s this story on Advocate.com where the Rangers’ Sean Avery is quoted as saying, in the Toronto Sun:
“If there’s a kid in Canada or wherever, who is playing and really loves the game and wants to keep playing but he’s worried about coming out, I’d tell him to pick up the phone and call [NHLPA executive director] Donald Fehr and tell him to book me a [plane] ticket,” he told the Toronto Sun. “I’ll stand beside him in the dressing room while he tells his teammates he is gay. Maybe if Sean Avery is there, they would have less of a problem with it.”

Also, in case you missed it (or missed us missing it) Chris Drury will not play tomorrow, or probably Monday in Detroit, because of a knee injury that’s been bothering him. And Erik Christensen is, according to reports out of practice, going to make his return in Montreal, probably a bit earlier than expected. Martin Biron is the probable starter in goal.
