Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Anaheim Ducks defenseman Sheldon Souray will be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season after undergoing wrist surgery in late July.

The Ducks, on Tuesday, revealed that Souray suffered a torn ligament in his right wrist while working out off the ice on July 17. He underwent surgery a week later.

Recovery time is expected to be 4-to-6 months from the date of the procedure.

Souray joined the Ducks in July 2012, signing a three-year deal as a free agent. He posted seven goals with 10 assists for 17 points in 44 games during the shortened 2013 season, leading the team with a plus-19 rating.

The 37-year-old veteran has 109 goals and 300 points in 758 games with New Jersey, Montreal, Edmonton, Dallas and Anaheim since breaking into the league with the Devils in 1997.

Anaheim signed defenseman Mark Fistric to a one-year contract on Tuesday to help offset the loss of Souray.
