from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Sometimes the guys in the Dallas Stars locker room will give it to Sheldon Souray. Call him rookie. Give him the gears about having been banished to the nether world of the American Hockey League. “Nothing’s off limits for those guys,” the big defenseman quipped. “But you wouldn’t have it any other way.” The ribbing doesn’t bother Souray, because it’s yet another reminder of the journey he has traveled to the far end of the hockey spectrum and back. The joking reinforces that the past is the past and that his future is what he imagined and hoped it might be even when things looked most bleak. continued
PLAYERS: Sheldon Souray
TEAMS: Dallas Stars
