Sean Avery’s Gubernatorial Campaign Dealt A Serious Blow(job)

From the New York Daily News’ Jose Martinez and Tracy Connor :

Rangers hockey star Sean Avery’s name and private cell phone number are in the little black book of Manhattan madam Kristin Davis.

Avery, 27, a trash-talking enforcer who has dated a string of models and actresses, is listed as a $500 client of brothel Maison de L’Amour.

Contacted Friday at the number in the records, the pretty boy known in the NHL as “The Animal” at first laughed when told where his name had turned up.

“For some reason, I highly doubt that,” Avery told the Daily News, insisting he was the target of a practical joke.

“It’s April Fools’ Day coming up and I’m not going to fall for it.”

It’s no joke. His name is one of more than 2,000 on a computer spreadsheet, detailing Davis’ X-rated operations, obtained by The News.

In a later statement, Avery denied using Davis’ services.

“This assertion is false and defamatory,” Avery said. “I was never a client of Ms. Davis, nor of any prostitute.”

A subsequent Daily News report this afternoon from John Dellapina and Carrie Mellago includes has Avery claiming “we’ve been laughing hysterically about this all morning,” and “I do know that if I ever was to venture into one of these establishments, I definitely wouldn’t use my own name.”

In a barely related note, the Rangers’ AHL affiliate in Hartford are hosting a pregame celebrity sled hockey game before their April 6 tilt with Lowell. This could be a terrific opportunity for Vin Baker to make his return to the public eye.

    Would any Ranger fan really think less of Avery for something like this? I thought the whole reason for bringing him aboard was that the team was short on sociopaths.
