In ’06/’07, @SSouray set the record for powerplay goals for defenseman in a single season with 19.

At least, that’s what he told John Scott on Dropping the Gloves.
“Anyone can score goals on the power play with Andrei Markov and Alex Kovalev giving you lifted passes.” – Sheldon Souray
Sure, Souray got a lot of help from those two players during the 2006-07 season, but he’s surpassed them in every way this season!
I’m not saying Souray is wrong in thinking he owes some of his exploits to his two teammates, but I do think he had a greater impact this season.
Sheldon Souray also talked about Alex Kovalev’s power and how he dominated everything, even training. The Russian possessed a real talent with the puck and didn’t hesitate to demonstrate it during training sessions. Souray explained that Kovalev was one of the most difficult players to face, even in practice.
According to Souray, Kovalev’s secret was really his power, which made it very difficult to take the puck away from him.
