Sean Avery appeared on the latest season of “Dancing With the Stars” for just one week before being voted off. He and partner Karina Smirnoff were one of two pairs that were given the boot after week one, and New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur seemed to enjoy his former nemesis being eliminated so soon.
On Wednesday, Brodeur told NJ.com’s Randy Miller that he has never watched “Dancing With the Stars” but heard Avery didn’t do so hot.
“I didn’t watch – I don’t watch those shows – but I was watching NHL Network and they mentioned it,” Brodeur said. “What more could he do to embarrass himself? There it is!”
Several years ago, the NHL had to create a rule called the “Avery Rule” after the former New York Rangers goon stood in front of Brodeur facing him while waving his stick like a madman. Avery was attempting to screen Brodeur, but he wasn’t even paying attention to the play or anything behind him. They have no been fond of each other since.
Deadspin pointed out that Avery fired back at Brodeur on Twitter Thursday.
Embarrassing is when u sleep with the #Nanny and get caught :)

Woke up beside a super model? Awesome, bro. The supermodel he would be referring to is his fiancee Hilary Rhoda, who is obviously a great catch but there’s no need to go middle school here. Avery blamed the producers of “Dancing With the Stars” for his early exit from the show, which should surprise no one.
