As per McErlain at FanHouse:
Just about an hour ago, the news hit the wires that New York Rangers winger Sean Avery had been transported to a Manhattan hospital overnight after suffering from cardiac arrest. Now TSN is reporting the why: A lacerated spleen:
Sean Avery has a lacerated spleen and will be out the remainder of the season, sources tell TSN.
The source went on to say that the laceration was detected with a CT scan after Avery was taken to hospital following the Game 3 with the Penguins.
The New York Rangers expect Avery to make a full recovery in the off-season.
