Sean Avery was one of the most hated hockey players, but he is loved by beautiful Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Hilary Rhoda and that’s a good thing. The former NHL enforcer got engaged to the lovely Rhoda whom he was dating for three years as reported by People Magazine.

You have seen the scintillating Rhoda from her breathtaking appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2009, 2010 and 2011. She was also linked to dating Mark Sanchez. Avery, who played for the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, Dallas Stars and the New York Rangers is a very lucky man as you can see by heavenly Hilary’s photos.
