The Rangers will waive infamous instigator Sean Avery on Tuesday, first reported in a tweet from New York Post columnist Larry Brooks. Entering his 13th year in the league, Avery played for New York for five of the last six years, his only other team being the Stars for the 2008-09 season.

Avery’s agent Pat Morris confirmed the move to Sporting News. Morris said that Avery “will pursue whatever the options are once he is put on waivers, and clears or doesn’t clear.”

The controversial left winger struggled to find a place in the Rangers lineup in training camp and was scratched from the final two exhibition games for New York. If Avery is not claimed by another team off of waivers, he would likely be sent to the Rangers’ AHL affiliate in Connecticut.
