There's a chance that Sheldon Souray won't be able to return from his current wrist injury.

He had considered his latest surgery over the summer, but opted for a different procedure because he was concerned that this operation would end his career. "This is a difficult situation for Sheldon and a tough loss for the team," Ducks GM Bob Murray said. "Sheldon has been in pain for quite some time. This surgery was his best course of action in order to alleviate pain and discomfort, and regain full mobility in his wrist. Sheldon's long-term health is the most important issue right now, and we support his difficult decision to have this surgery."

Sheldon Souray will undergo a second wrist surgery.

The original goal was to have Souray return before the Olympic break. Now he's not expected to play at all in 2013-14. He's a great offensive defenseman throughout much of his career, but injuries have been an ongoing problem for him. Given that he'll turn 38 before the start of the 2014-15 campaign, he'll be a huge risk, even as a later round pick, in fantasy drafts.

Sheldon Souray isn't close to returning from a wrist injury.

Souray needed surgery after completely tearing the ligament. He hasn't played yet in 2013-14 and his recovery isn't going as well as coach Bruce Boudreau had hoped.

Sheldon Souray (wrist) is expected to return around the Olympic break.

Souray completely tore the ligament in his wrist when throwing a 40-pound medicine ball in July. His return to the lineup at the time was estimated to be in four-six months so it looks like it will be closer to six months as the Olympics are in February. He is worth taking in deeper leagues as Souray has a big shot from the point and will eventually be on the power play.

Sheldon Souray (wrist) kicked off his rehabilitation on Monday.

Souray has already had his cast removed. That being said, his timetable hasn't changed, so he's still not expected to return to the Ducks' lineup until December at the earliest.

Sheldon Souray (wrist) said he was hurt while throwing a 40-pound medicine ball during an off-ice workout.

His ligament was completely torn and he immediately heard and felt a pop. He is currently wearing a cast and will have it for eight weeks until his wrist is re-evaluated in mid-September. At that point, he hopes to be able to begin a rehab program.

Sheldon Souray will be out of action for four-to-six months after tearing a ligament in his right wrist.

He suffered the injury while doing some off-ice training in July and had surgery on July 25. The four-to-six month timetable could place his return in December or January. Souray had 17 points, 52 penalty minutes and a plus-19 rating in 44 games last season.

Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau has confirmed that Sheldon Souray will play in Game 4 Monday night.

Toni Lydman won't play and it may be unlikely that he will return before the end of the series. Souray was a healthy scratch for the Ducks in Game 3 after playing in the team's previous two matches against the Red Wings.

While the Anaheim Ducks seem to be leaving the door open ever so slightly for Toni Lydman to play in Game 4, it appears likely that Sheldon Souray will play instead.

Bruce Boudreau says that "bright lights are bugging" Lydman, so it certainly sounds like Lydman isn't good to go. Souray was a healthy scratch in Game 3.

Sheldon Souray could return to the Anaheim lineup for Game 4 Monday.

Souray was a healthy scratch in Game 3 after playing in the first two games of the series. But a head injury to Toni Lydman looked serious and Souray could be back in the lineup.

Sheldon Souray is projected to be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Souray confirmed that he is not injured. "I’m a little surprised," Souray said. "But at this time of the year, it’s all about winning. Whatever we have to do to win, we’re on board with." Souray took two minor penalties in Game 2 on Thursday and the Detroit Red Wings capitalized on both opportunities.

Sheldon Souray (lower body) should be able to return to the lineup Thursday, according to the Orange County Register's Eric Stephens.

Sheldon Souray (lower body) missed Monday's game.

Souray sat out his second straight game but this was more for precautionary reasons. He has revitalized his career in 2013 with seven goals and 17 points in 42 games to go with a plus-23 rating. He should be able to play on Thursday barring a setback so get ready to activate him if you normally would.
