Dany Heatley was put back into the Ducks' lineup on Sunday.

Heatley logged just 10:24 minutes of ice time and didn't fire a shot on goal. He's not worth owning in standard leagues at this time.
Nov 10 - 8:20 AM

Dany Heatley drew back into the Ducks' lineup on Wednesday, but only logged 11:47 minutes of ice time.

Heatley spent Anaheim's previous two games in the press box. Given that the Ducks were missing Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry Wednesday night, it's telling that they still used Heatley sparingly. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues.
Nov 6 - 8:21 AM

Dany Heatley agrees with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau assessment that he was rusty in his return from a groin injury.

Heatley played in two games before spending the following two contests in the press box. The Ducks original plan was to use Heatley on their top line and while they might stick with that, he's a huge gamble. We can't recommend owning him in standard leagues at this time.
Nov 4 - 10:04 AM

Dany Heatley was a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game.

Heatley missed the start of the season with a groin injury and returned to play two games before coach Bruce Boudreau decided to sit him Friday and Sunday. "There’s rust," Boudreau said. "He'd be the first one to tell you he's not as ready as he'd want to be. That's going to come." Heatley could still see time on the first line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry so while we cannot recommend him at this time, he certainly is worth keeping an eye on.
Nov 3 - 4:55 AM

Dany Heatley will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against Dallas.

Heatley has no points in two games this season. He isn't a factor in fantasy leagues anymore. The decline has been a steep one.
Oct 31 - 8:36 PM

Dany Heatley didn't do much in his Ducks debut Tuesday night.

Heatley missed Anaheim's first nine games due to a groin injury. He had just one shot on goal in 13:26 minutes of ice time. He might just need some time to shake off the rust, but given how unproductive he was in 2013-14, he might not get much better. Still, he's worth monitoring for now.
Oct 29 - 8:06 AM

Dany Heatley (groin) said he would make his Ducks' debut on Tuesday.

Heatley missed Anaheim's first nine games due to his groin injury. It looks like the Ducks are sticking with their original plan of having Heatley play on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, so he'll be worth keeping an eye on.
Oct 28 - 10:04 AM

Dany Heatley (groin) skated at practice Monday.

He played with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry during the session. Heatley's regular season debut with the Ducks has been on hold because of a groin injury.
Oct 27 - 5:16 PM

Although Dany Heatley (groin) has started to practice regularly with Anaheim, it's not clear when he'll return.

"It's progressing," Heatley said. "Probably a little slower than I'd like. But it keeps taking steps forward. Today was a really good day. Got a little more contact. A little more work in the corners. I'm feeling better." Heatley had just 12 goals and 16 assists in 76 games last season. That being said, he's worth keeping an eye on when he returns because he might get a shot on Anaheim's top line.
Oct 24 - 9:58 AM

Dany Heatley (groin) resumed practicing with the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

"It felt good being out there with the guys," Heatley said. "I feel good. It's progressing really well. First, you skate by yourself, and then you get in some practices. Hopefully it keeps going the right way and I can get back soon." Heatley has missed the Ducks' first six games of 2014-15. He'll be worth keeping an eye on when he's back as he might play on Anaheim's top line.
Oct 21 - 8:17 AM

Despite skating on his own for the last week, Dany Heatley has not practiced since his groin injury on September 28.

It's been almost three weeks and Heatley, who was penciled in to play on the first line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, was not happy that he could not play Friday against his ex-Minnesota squad. "I felt really good in the preseason," Heatley said. "I thought I had a good camp. It was frustrating to start this way. I'm getting good time in the gym and on the ice. Hopefully when I'm ready, I'll be really sharp." Stay tuned and take him off the waiver wire if he is available as there will not be too many opportunities to grab a first line player the rest of the way. There is no timetable for his return so if you do get him, stash him away.
Oct 18 - 4:34 AM

Dany Heatley (groin) has been skating all week, but there's still no timetable for his return.

All he would say is: "Hopefully it's sooner rather than later." Heatley hasn't been able to make his Anaheim debut in the regular season because of a groin injury.
Oct 17 - 3:44 PM

Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau said that it is unrealistic to expect Dany Heatley to suit up in the team's home opener on Friday.

Heatley was injured in a preseason game against the Los Angeles Kings on September 28th. The 33-year-old will try to have a bounce-back season in 2014-15. He registered 12 goals and 28 points in 76 games last season.
Oct 12 - 6:42 PM

Dany Heatley (groin) is on the injured reserve list.

Heatley was already expected to miss the start of the season, so this doesn't come as a surprise. He was penciled in to play alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry this season, but the longer he remains on the sidelines, the more likely it is that another player will establish themselves in that role.
