Anaheim defenceman Sheldon Souray will miss entire season after further surgery on right wrist

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anaheim Ducks defenceman Sheldon Souray will miss the entire season after another operation on his right wrist. His surgery Friday was to relieve arthritis symptoms related to a torn ligament.

The 37-year-old player was injured during summer training and he never got on the ice in his second season with the NHL-leading Ducks.

Souray had seven goals and 10 assists during a solid debut season with Anaheim, which signed him to a three-year, $11 million deal in 2012.

Souray's absence has been mitigated by the emergence of 19-year-old rookie Hampus Lindholm and the maturation of U.S. national team defenceman Cam Fowler.

Anaheim also assigned long-injured defenceman Luca Sbisa to the AHL for rehabilitation.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
