Sheldon Souray, Mark Fistric, and the Serious Nature of Wrist Injuries

Ouch.

Earlier today, the Anaheim Ducks announced that Sheldon Souray tore a ligament in his wrist back in mid July during an off-ice workout. As a result, Souray is out for four to six months as he recovers.

That's bad.

The club had been keeping the information under wraps presumably to prevent it from hurting negotiations and talks for trades and signings of a replacement defenseman. Coincidentally, The Ducks also announced today that they signed defenseman Mark Fistric to a one-year, $900,000 contract. It's nice to have a defenseman locked up as insurance, but hopefully the silver lining to this injury is that it will give the younger kids, like Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen, some playing time and the opportunity to impress us.

That's good.

But wrist injuries are no joke. To prove it to you, I scoured YouTube in order to find videos of idiots hurting their wrists, and I'm going to show you some of them. That'll teach you to underestimate wrist injuries!

Get well soon, Souray.
