Ducks defenseman Sheldon Souray tore a ligament in his right wrist working out last month and underwent surgery that will sideline him at least through late November, the team announced Tuesday.
Souray, 37, suffered the injury while conditioning in Idaho on July 17, a team spokesman said, and underwent surgery eight days later.
Souray scored seven goals with 10 assists in 44 games last season.
He was throwing a large medicine ball when he heard something pop in his wrist, a team official said. To replace Souray, the Ducks signed Mark Fistric, 27, to a one-year contract worth $900,000. Fistric had six assists in 25 games for the Edmonton Oilers last season.
