Sheldon Souray is looking forward to starting the season as a member of the Anaheim Ducks.
Souray signed with the Ducks in July as a UFA and is expected to be a veteran presence on the blueline as Anaheim dealt Lubomir Visnovsky in the off-season to the Islanders."Honestly, I'm just happy and excited," Souray said of the tentative deal between the NHL and the Unon. "Really, that's the only way to put it. It's been stressful situation. It was a situation players have really had no control over and it was going to happen when the time was right. So you try and not to worry about things. It's a cliche to say but you really try to not worry about it. But the fact is this is what we do. This is what we've done every year since when we were kids." Look for Souray to be part of the first power play alongside Cam Fowler and have a big year in Southern California.
