It has been revealed today that former New York Rangers legend Sean Avery is a gay man who has actually been engaged to a boyfriend that he has been seeing for a year and a half now.

According to the gossip site TheFrameDriven.com, the 33-year-old ex-NHL star turned Vogue intern has been dating Andy Cohen, the creator of Bravo TV and  host of “Watch What Happens Live!
