New York Rangers hockey star Sean Avery was released from the hospital Sunday after lacerating his spleen during a game Tuesday night, his rep tells PEOPLE.

"He still needs a lot of rest," his rep says, "and will be going for checkups with his doctors over the next few days."

But bedrest isn't the only thing on his agenda: Avery is keeping his prior commitment to attend one of New York City's most exclusive social engagements of the year: Monday night's Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala. Avery, who is set to begin an editorial internship with Vogue in a week, will be attending the gala as a guest of the magazine, donning an Alexander McQueen suit.

Avery's injury has sidelined him for the remainder of the hockey season.
