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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
