Over the course of his nine years in the NHL, Sean Avery has made a name for himself by being a pest. In fact, he's one of the most hated players in the league for his on-ice antics.

At the beginning of the summer, it looked like Avery might be changing his reputation. In May, a PSA was released where Avery announced his support of same-sex marriage, as part of the "New Yorkers for Marriage Equality Campaign."
