NEW YORK (WFAN) – Sean Avery’s on-again, off-again career with the Rangers is reportedly off — again.

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the Blueshirts have waived Avery. That would presumably hand the team’s final roster spot to Erik Christensen.

“We’ll have to make a decision,” coach John Tortorella told NHL.com Monday, without specifying when exactly the call would be made.

Representatives for Avery told Newsday that the agitator would be waived at noon on Tuesday.

“You look at (Christensen) and a big reason why we get in (last season’s Stanley Cup playoffs) is that shootout,” Tortorella said yesterday. “I know what Sean is and the type of player, what he does.”

The Rangers would be looking at a $925,000 cap hit for Christensen compared $1.9 million for Avery.

Good move by the Blueshirts? Be heard in the comments below…
