Sheldon Souray has yet to play a game this season, and he won’t get to.

According to Sportsnet.ca, sources have told Mark Spector that Souray, the Anaheim Ducks’ defenseman, will have season-ending wrist surgery on Friday.

In 44 regular season games with the Ducks during the lockout-shortened campaign, Souray scored seven goals and had 17 points. He also appeared in six playoff games, adding one assist.

The Ducks put the 37-year-old Souray on injured reserve at the end of September, just prior to the start of the regular season.

In late August, it was revealed that Souray suffered a torn ligament in his right wrist during an off-ice workout. At the time, it looked as if he would be out four-to-six months, which led the Ducks to sign depth blue liner Mark Fistric.

    Tough break but the ducks are playing well. Although I do think there overrated, their possession stats 5on5 aren’t very good. They can’t sustain that winning percentage, although they will most likely finish 1st still. A lot of hockey to play left

      1st in the pacific I mean

        So that would mean they will sustain their ability to win by finishing 1st..

        I think what he means is, they won’t be able to sustain the winning percentage but they’re probably still finish 1st because of the lead in points they’ve gathered. Make sense?

    What he means, is that, since he’s a Shark fan, he has to find the lamest stat to put down the red hot Ducks. Possession Stats, really?
    10 comeback wins in the last 19 games. Kind of hard to do without possession. The Ducks, have points in 21 of 22 games (19-1-2). Wow, guess their opponents are scoring on themselves.
    There is really only 1 stat that matters after 60 minutes and that’s the W.
    Ducks GF: 170, rank 2cd
    Sharks GF: 153, rank 5th
    HMMMMM, somebody’s possessing the puck.

    Maybe the Sharks will make the playoffs and then crumble like always. ;)

      And I didn’t even bring up the Ducks early powerplay struggles. Wow, so many Duck goals have actually been scored 5 on 5.
