Whether it is fair or not, Charles Inglis has developed an outlaw-like reputation in the Western Hockey League.
Some have gone as far as calling him the "Sean Avery of the Dub." But the comparison to Avery doesn't sit well with the 20-year-old centre.
"I hate the comparison to Sean Avery," says Inglis, who has racked up 431 penalty minutes in 282 games. "I don't want to be like him or compared to him."
Nonetheless, similar to Avery's public problems with the Dallas Stars and New York Rangers, Inglis has been the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons in more than one WHL dressing room. He has been traded three times throughout his five WHL seasons, leaving the Saskatoon Blades, Prince George Cougars, and Red Deer Rebels on sour notes.
It all started when he was in Saskatoon. As a young teenager, Inglis didn't handle himself in a way the Blades expected him to and they didn't put up with it, trading him to the Cougars after two seasons.
