Avery also dated model and actress Rachel Hunter, the girlfriend of Los Angeles Kings centre Jarrett Stoll.
"My thoughts were that it was a very disrespectful comment and the league took action and I definitely agree with the way they took action today," Phaneuf said following a 3-1 loss to the Stars.
"Sean crossed that line," Stars head coach Dave Tippett said. "I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds.
The league imposed the ban "following inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game made by Avery earlier (Tuesday)." Avery threw a verbal bomb after getting the attention of television cameras before the Stars’ 3-1 win over the Flames in Calgary. "I don’t know what that’s about, but enjoy the game tonight." Avery’s ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert, is dating Phaneuf and had been romantically linked to Mike Komisarek of the Montreal Canadiens.
"We’ve always professed that there is nobody that’s ever bigger than our group or bigger than the team." The ban may have saved Avery from on-ice retribution from Phaneuf, who is one of the fiercest hitters in the NHL, but Phaneuf would not comment on what he would have done had Avery played.
there’s lots of trash talking that goes on on the ice, but that to announce something like that for everybody to hear, to me that crosses the line and the league and our ownership felt that too." When asked if Avery’s relationship with the Stars can be saved, Tippett responded "time will tell" and assistant captain Mike Modano wasn’t sure either. "It’s a situation we’ll have to address when that time comes, if it does." Stars owner Tom Hicks released a statement saying that he fully agreed with the league’s decision.
Tippett had defended his abrasive forward since the Stars signed him to a US.5-million, four-year contract in July, but he dropped his shield Tuesday.
"I think everyone in our room believes there is an integrity that has to go along with the game, respect for the game and respect for your opponents," he told reporters prior to the game.
He’s also previously been fined for diving and criticizing NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell.
Just a few months removed from an appearance in the Western Conference final, the Stars are among the worst teams in the league.
