A recap of the latest 24/7 episode.

"I just try to do a little bit of everything."
Rangers forward Sean Avery explains his approach to life.

In this instance, he spends an off day as a fashion model, though it is unclear why these people are taking his photo and for whom. Still, Avery is right into it. It is impossible to watch this scene and not think of Ben Stiller in Zoolander. "Blue Steel!"

A profile on Cody McLeod.

When current Colorado Avalanche enforcer Cody McLeod was playing for the San Diego Gulls in his first full professional season, it wasn't the National Hockey League that he was focused on. He was simply wondering if he'd ever get to the American Hockey League instead.

"Yeah, it was pretty tough some days. I remember being there some days and just thinking, 'Am I ever going to get called up to the American Hockey League,'" McLeod told ECHL.com

"I think once you get to the American League, you see guys that you've played with or played against getting called up, you know that you're going to get a shot. You just have to keep doing what you did your whole life to get to the American League. Like I said, the ECHL is a good starting point. You've got to keep working and keep believing that you're going to get that chance."

Well, this could get interesting...

Dozens of retired NFL players have recently filed class-action lawsuits against the NFL alleging the league ignored "overwhelming medical evidence that on-field concussions led directly to brain injuries and frequently had tragic repercussions for their retired players." One action claims negligence and fraud, and alleges the retired players suffer from speech problems, memory loss, depression, anxiety, dizziness and headaches.

"In theory former [NHL] players could start a lawsuit like that against the NHL," said Caroline Zayid, a Toronto lawyer who specializes in class actions at McCarthy Tétrault. "But there are a number of hurdles."
