The Saga of Sheldon Souray has taken another twist with the news that Minor Big Sexy has broken his hand in a scrap with the AHL toughs.
Here is the straight news from TSN.ca:
"The American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears will be without defenceman Sheldon Souray for two weeks with a hand injury. According to pennlive.com, Souray suffered a broken hand Saturday in a game against Adirondack when he fought Matt Clarkson."
The two weeks on the shelf are only part of the problem as it sends the signal to other NHL teams that a Souray pickup might not be the greatest idea. If not for the 1,368 reasons that existed a week ago, there is now a new concern that his surgically repaired punching guns might not stand the test of time.
Having said that – it is a strange blessing that we aren’t subject to the disappointment of Souray breaking his hand here in E-town while Tambo is shopping him all over hells half acre. 30th place AND a busted Souray mitt is some drama we don’t need up here right now.
Having said that – we still can’t help but think that if Souray had just kept his mouth shut at the end of last season he would be having a much more positive year.
What goes around comes back around we suppose.
Here is the fight in question. Big ups to Magnus PI for the heads up.
Souray broke his hand. But his sexy face and abs seem unscathed in the incident.
