Souray, 28, anchored Montreal's defense with 15 goals and 20 assists in 63 games, along with 104 penalty minutes, last season. He also led the team in ice time, averaging just under 23½ minutes.
It was quite a comeback for Souray, who missed the entire
2002-03 campaign with a left wrist injury and was named as a
finalist for the Masterton Trophy, awarded to the player who
best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship
and dedication to hockey.
