Coach Dave Tippett just talked about Avery's suspension. Here's a few snippets on what he had to say:
"This is something the league has taken action and our owner supported it. I think everyone in our room believes there’s an integrity that has to go along with the game and respect for the game, opponents and Sean crossed that line."
"The words and disrespect for an opponent like that (is the problem). There is a lot of trash talk that goes on the ice and stuff, but to announce something like that for everybody to here, to me that crosses the line. Our ownership feels the same way."
As far as where Avery and the Stars go from here: "We’ll tackle that when it comes around. Right now we have a game to prepare for."
