Avery: Hit typical of most French guys in league


Sean Avery was a guest on The Sports Network of Canada on Tuesday, discussing Denis Gauthier’s hit on Jeremy Roenick, a hit that gave the forward a concussion.
Avery told the Canadian sports television network that he thought the Coyotes player delivered a “clean hit.” He added: “I think it was typical of most French guys in our league with a visor on, running around and playing tough and not back anything up.
“I’d think if a guy like Brett Hull was coming up the middle, somebody probably wouldn’t have stepped up and hit him, but like I said, a typical move from a guy wearing a visor that certainly doesn’t like to get scratched at all.” Gauthier was born in Montreal. Roenick is from Boston and Avery from Pickering, Ontario.
