Souray signs three-year deal with Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks announced Sunday that they have signed veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray to a three-year contract through the 2014-15 NHL season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

Souray, 35, appeared in 64 games for Dallas last season, scoring six goals and 15 assists with a plus-11 rating and 73 penalty minutes. He appeared in his 700th career NHL game on Feb. 26, 2012 against Vancouver.

In 714 career NHL games (New Jersey, Montreal, Edmonton and Dallas), Souray has collected 102 goals and 181 assists with 1,093 penalty minutes. A three-time NHL All-Star (2004, 2007, 2009), Souray has also appeared in 34 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with New Jersey and Montreal, recording three goals and seven assists.

The 6-foot-4, 237-pound blueliner had a career year in 2006-07 with Montreal, setting personal bests in goals (26), assists (38), points (64), power-play goals (19) and game-winning goals (six). His 19 power-play goals in 2006-07 broke the NHL single-season record for most goals scored by a defenseman via the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
