The question is, are you doing a good job at work and taking care of your duties/responsibilities? If you were, then I'm sure your boss could care less what you were doing. If you weren't', then your boss might have reason to question your involvement in "other activities" at work.... Thing is, Avery's game has fallen off the last 2 seasons and has showed no signs of coming back. This has coincided with his involvement in various ventures outside the rink. Whether or not there is a causal relationship there or not is difficult to determine. Avery's hockey career is quickly fading and he's not that old. If he doesn't have a bounce back season this year, I don't envision many teams (if any) being interested in his services when his contract expires.
