Sean Avery

Season 18

Notorious NHL pest Sean Avery, who retired nearly two years ago, has been tapped to join the latest cast of Dancing With The Stars. On the ice, Avery wasn't exactly known for his finesse, which will be required on the dance floor. Avery frequented the penalty box, leading the league in penalty minutes twice during his career. Throughout his tenure in the NHL, Avery played for the Rangers, Kings, Stars and Red Wings, ultimately retiring in 2012 as a New York Ranger.

Here's a look at the previous appearances by sports figures on the show and how they fared.
