Ducks Activate Heatley

News: Dany Heatley (groin) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Dany Heatley is considered ready to play after taking part in a conditioning stint at AHL Norfolk over the past several days, but there's no guarantee he'll slot back into the Anaheim lineup right away. The Ducks are riding a seven-game winning streak and have gotten strong production from their top three lines, which may make coach Bruce Boudreau reluctant to break up that continuing by reinserting Heatley.

Heatley Rejoins Ducks

News: Dany Heatley (groin) rejoined the Ducks on Monday after completing his rehab assignment at AHL Norfolk, but has yet to be formally activated from injured reserve, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley appears to be healthy right now, but with no opening currently existing in the Ducks' lineup, it appears the forward will simply continue practicing with the team until further notice. The veteran once looked like he could ascend to a top-line role with the Ducks during training camp, but the groin injury ultimately required surgery, quashing those hopes. He'll likely have to settle for a third-line role once he eventually does get activated from IR.

Ducks' Heatley Sent To AHL For Conditioning

News: Dany Heatley (groin) was sent to AHL Norfolk on Thursday on a long-term conditioning loan, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks revealed Wednesday that Dany Heatley underwent surgery last month to correct a persistent groin issue, and with the veteran forward now recovered from the procedure, he'll test things out in the minors. Heatley is expected to play for Norfolk in their games Friday and Saturday, after which he could be cleared to meet the Ducks in Toronto before the weekend concludes. He's been limited to just four games with the Ducks this season, after inking a one-year, $1 million deal over the summer.

Ducks' Heatley (Groin) Close To Returning

News: Dany Heatley (groin) reportedly underwent surgery last month, but is now close to returning to the lineup, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley missed an extended period at the beginning of the season due to the groin injury, returning for a short stint but being a healthy scratch for all but two games. He was placed on injured reserve Nov. 14 with the groin injury that could have contributed to his poor performance. Heatley appears to be closing in on a return, but it remains to be seen whether he will become a consistent contributor for the Ducks moving forward.

Ducks' Heatley Back Practicing

News: Dany Heatley (groin) participated in Monday's practice, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley has missed nearly an entire month while recovering from a groin setback that cost him nearly all of October. It once appeared that he would have a chance to step into a top-line role alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, but those hopes may have fallen by the wayside with Matt Beleskey since taking advantage of the opportunity.

Ducks Place Heatley On Injured Reserve

News: Dany Heatley was placed on injured reserve Friday with a groin injury, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley skated with the team Friday, but apparently is dealing with a groin issue of some sort. He had been in and out of the lineup this season, but now he will leave the team with 12 forwards, likely prompting them to make a move.

Ducks' Heatley Likely Scratched Sunday

News: Dany Heatley will likely be scratched for the second straight game Sunday, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley has appeared in just two regular season games for the Ducks this season, but has failed to record a point and has a minus-two rating. The veteran looks to be falling out of favor with the Ducks after coming into the season with a chance to be on the top line.

Ducks' Heatley Expected To Make Debut Tuesday

News: Dany Heatley (groin) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday and is expected to skate on the top line alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry when the Ducks face off with the Blackhawks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks' offseason acquisition has yet to appear in a regular season game after opening the season on IR. Dany Heatley, a two-time 50-goal scorer, was preparing for a top-line role before suffering the groin injury late in the preseason, so there's a good chance coach Bruce Boudreau will give him plenty of leash in trying to solidify himself at that spot. The top-line role proved fruitful for both Matt Beleskey and Devante Smith-Pelly during their respective runs next to Getzlaf and Perry in the first few games, making Heatley worth a speculative add in just about any format while he remains there.

Ducks' Heatley Practices

News: Dany Heatley (groin) practiced with the team Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley hasn't played a game yet this season, but was skating alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the team's top line Monday, so he looks likely to be in the lineup Tuesday against the Blackhawks.

Ducks' Heatley Showing Improvement

News: Dany Heatley (groin) took part in a full practice Thursday, but isn't sure when he might receive clearance to start playing in games, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley noted that while his condition is improving, he's still moving "a little slower" than he anticipated. He'll probably need a few practices to get back up to full speed. As a result, it might be safe to rule him out of Friday's game against the Columbus, but it's possible that he could return later in the weekend against the Sharks.

Ducks' Heatley Unlikely To Return Over Weekend

News: Dany Heatley (groin) continues to make progress while skating, but is expected to miss the Ducks' two weekend contests against the Wild and Blues, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Even though the Ducks still haven't settled on a top-line left wing since Dany Heatley acquired the groin injury, the team is of no mind to rush him back and potential worsen the ailment. With Patrick Maroon joining Heatley on injured reserve Wednesday, it appears Matt Beleskey and Emerson Etem are the top candidates to skate on the Ryan Getzlaf-Corey Perry line.

Ducks' Heatley Unlikely For Home Opener

News: Dany Heatley (groin) resumed skating in Anaheim on Sunday, but is unlikely for the team's home opener against Minnesota on Friday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley was placed on IR on Tuesday, but his timetable was unclear. The fact that he is skating is a good sign and an indication he is closing in on a return, but coach Bruce Boudreau expressed a return date later than Friday.

Ducks' Heatley Placed On IR

News: Dany Heatley (groin) will be placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley hasn't skated since suffering the groin injury last week and can probably safely be ruled out for the Ducks' first two contests. The veteran winger was expected to open the season on the top line next to Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry to start the season, but the Ducks will have to table that plan temporarily while he remains out of commission. Matt Beleskey or Patrick Maroon could receive the appointment to the top line in the interim.

Heatley Still Not Skating

News: Anaheim's top offseason acquisition, Dany Heatley (groin) remains sidelined and has yet to resume skating, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley was penciled in on the top line with Captain Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, but now someone else gets to play with the dynamic duo. And who that will be, who knows. Coach Bruce Boudreau has a lot of options with the depth at his disposal. Patrick Maroon would likely get the first shot, although that is speculation, as we are just going by how well he played with the two superstars last season, especially in the post-season. He will travel with the team to start the season, but muscle strains are tricky. Have other options available for those that drafted the previous 50 goal scorer.

Ducks' Heatley (Groin) Out At Least A Week

News: Dany Heatley suffered a groin injury during Sunday's preseason contest and will be out for a minimum of one week, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The injury puts Dany Heatley's availability for the Oct. 9 regular season opener against the Penguins in serious jeopardy, but perhaps more significantly, it could end coach Bruce Boudreau's experiment with Heatley on the top line next to Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. With Heatley unable to practice Monday, Patrick Maroon occupied the top left wing spot, and would likely do so for as long as Heatley remains sidelined.

Ducks' Heatley Scores In First Game With New Team

News: Dany Heatley had the opening tally and eventual game winner in the Ducks 4-0 victory over the Avalanche in his first pre-season game with his new team.
Analysis: Dany Heatley has been skating with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the team's top unit. If he starts the season alongside these top fantasy performers he may have some deep league value.

Ducks' Heatley Could Play On Top Line

News: Coach Bruce Boudreau said he thinks Dany Heatley can be a better fit with captain Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the top line this season than Dustin Penner was last year, Pro Hockey Talk reports.
Analysis: Boudreau noted that this offseason's free-agent experiment has been "a dangerous player" every time he's seen him. If Dany Heatley gets the first crack at playing alongside these two top-10 fantasy picks, his value would skyrocket, but we'll see how things go during the preseason. While Heatley has two 50-goal seasons on his resume, he's been on a steady decline since the 2006-07 campaign and the Ducks have a lot of other options. If he does get top-line time, Heatley could return late value on draft day.

Heatley Signs With Ducks

News: Dany Heatley has signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Ducks, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The 33-year-old Dany Heatley -- who notched 12 goals and 28 points in 76 games with the Wild this past season -- isn't the elite goal-scorer he once was, but he'll provide the Ducks with an experienced option at left wing. Keep an eye on who he ends up skating with in training camp, as Heatley could see increased production with Anaheim if he ends up on a scoring trio.

Heatley On Board Again For Wild

News: Dany Heatley notched an assist on one of Minnesota's two goals in Friday's Game 1 loss to Chicago, giving him four points in the last three games.
Analysis: Dany Heatley also threw his body around in the first period, slamming Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook into the boards after a whistle. Heatley is a shell of the player he used to be but he can still be effective.

Wild's Heatley: Vintage Performance In Game 7

News: Dany Heatley registered a goal and two assists in Minnesota's Game 7 victory over the Avalanche on Wednesday.
Analysis: Dany Heatley has been a major disappointment for the Wild this season, but he saved one of his best games of the campaign when the team needed it most. His marker in the second period tied the game at two apiece, and he picked up secondary helpers on both of Nino Niederreiter's goals, including his game-winner in overtime.

Wild's Heatley Will Play Monday

News: Dany Heatley will be in the lineup against the Avalanche on Monday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Dany Heatley was a healthy scratch in the first two games of the Wild's opening-round playoff series, but will get a chance to dress in Game 3 in an attempt to give the team a spark, considering they're down two games to none. Heatley collected 12 goals and 16 assists in 76 games this season, but also ended with a minus-18 rating.

WIld's Heatley Benched Again

News: Dany Heatley was a healthy scratch for the fifth time in six games in Tuesday's win over Boston.
Analysis: Dany Heatley is back to the bench with Nino Niederreiter returning from an injury. It doesn't look like Heatley is going to have much of a role in the playoffs.

Wild's Heatley Returns To Fourth Line

News: Dany Heatley had two hits and had 8:49 of ice time in Thursday's shootout loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Dany Heatley's play has declined so much that he was benched the previous two games. He was on the fourth line with Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter sidelined with injuries.

Wild's Heatley Stuck On Bench

News: Dany Heatley was a healthy scratch for a second consecutive game in Monday's win over the Kings, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's not clear when Dany Heatley will return to the lineup, as he's struggled this season and was minus-7 over his past five games before he was benched.

Wild To Scratch Heatley On Saturday

News: Dany Heatley will be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Coyotes, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo had been close to pulling Dany Heatley from the lineup in recent games, but ultimately chose not to due to the forward's presence on the power-play. However, Heatley's two costly turnovers in Thursday's loss to the Blues left Yeo will no choice but to bench the former star forward, who has a minus-7 rating in his past five games.
