Mary-Kate Olsen, a fashion designer and former Full House actress, is rumored to be rekindling her relationship with former hockey player Sean Avery, who she was spotted spending time with recently.

They were spotted visiting the new The Row store and hanging out with friend Andy Cohen. Olsen and Avery previously dated back in 2007 and they remained friends throughout the years.

Who is Sean Avery?

Sean Christopher Avery (born April 10, 1980) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. During his career in the National Hockey League (NHL), he played left wing for the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, and Dallas Stars, gaining recognition for controversial and disrespectful behavior both on and off the ice.

His agitating playing style led to multiple teams waiving him and having a contract terminated. He led the league in penalty minutes twice, during the 2003–04 and 2005–06 NHL seasons.

After retiring in 2012, Avery focused full-time on working in the creative industry. He has worked in fashion as an intern at Vogue magazine, as a model, as an actor, and as a restaurateur. Avery's memoir, Ice Capades: A Memoir of Fast Living and Tough Hockey, was published by Blue Rider Press in 2017. He has hosted a weekly podcast, No Gruffs Given with Sean Avery since December 2019.


Avery had a small role in the 2005 Maurice Richard biopic The Rocket: The Legend of Rocket Richard, portraying former New York Rangers defenseman Bob Dill. He appeared in a 2007 episode of MADtv with Kings teammates Tom Kostopoulos and Scott Thornton.

He appeared in two movies starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Peter Berg: 2016's Patriots Day and 2018's Mile 22. In January 2020, Avery announced he was cast in Christopher Nolan's film Tenet. He also appeared in Nolan's Oppenheimer in 2023.
