The Anaheim Ducks have signed veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray to a three-year, $11 million deal.
Anaheim announced the deal Sunday.
The 35-year-old Souray revived his career last season with the Dallas Stars, getting six goals and 15 assists in 64 games. The three-time All-Star is joining his fifth team in 12 NHL seasons.
Souray spent the 2010-11 season in the AHL while embroiled in a nasty dispute with the Edmonton Oilers, who eventually bought out the final year of his five-year, $27 million contract.
With a potent slap shot, Souray was one of the NHL's elite offensive defensemen during his time with the Montreal Canadiens. He also has missed significant stretches of his career with injuries.
Souray should provide toughness and veteran leadership for the Ducks' sometimes ineffective defense.
