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.

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.

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.

Forward Dany Heatley will miss the start of the Anaheim Ducks' regular season because of a groin injury.

Heatley hasn't skated for his new team since Sept. 28. He signed with Anaheim in the summer after a 12-season NHL career with four other teams.
Oct 7 - 9:52 PM

Dany Heatley (groin) did not skate on Friday and his status for Thursday's opener in Pittsburgh is up in the air.

Heatley suffered the injury on Sunday. He was slated to start the season on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry but that spot could go to Patrick Maroon if Heatley can't play. Coach Bruce Boudreau is hopeful that Heatley is able to play at some point during the Ducks four game road trip to kick off the NHL season. Heatley had only 12 goals and 28 points for the Wild last season but playing on the top line makes Heatley a 40-plus point candidate and possibly a lot more if he stays there.
Oct 4 - 4:59 AM

Dany Heatley's previously undisclosed injury is a groin problem.

Heatley will be out for at least a week. If that's the extent of his absence, then he'll still be available for the start of the regular season.
Sep 29 - 3:11 PM

Dany Heatley suffered an undisclosed injury against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night.

Heatley left the game after the second period and never came out to play in the third. Ducks' coach Bruce Boudreau wouldn't specify the type of injury Heatley suffered, but did mention post-game that "he's fine".

Dany Heatley's prime may be in the past, but those wrists are always locked and loaded.

Heater made it 2-0 Ducks just 6:47 into the second after a William Karlsson shot was blocked and popped out to him at the dot. He wasted no time zipping it past Martin Jones. He played just over 12 minutes and was not a factor otherwise.
Sep 26 - 2:54 AM

Dany Heatley scored a goal for the Ducks Monday night in a 4-0 split-squad win over Colorado in preseason action.

These two teams engaged in two contests on the night with split squads appearing at different locations. The goal was Heatley's first in an Anaheim uniform while Brendan Bell, Ben Lovejoy and Rickard Rakell also scored in the shutout victory. Goaltender Frederik Andersen was perfect as he blocked all 27 shots he faced for the clean sheet.

Dany Heatley thinks playing for the Ducks provides him with a good opportunity for him to show that he can still contribute offensively.

Heatley might end up playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, which is obviously an enviable assignment. "I score goals," Heatley said. "I've always been offensive and I think I can contribute offensively on this team. We’ll see what happens. I never like to put numbers on a season but I feel good about it and I'm excited to get started." We don't expect big things from Heatley after he scored 12 goals and 28 points in 76 games in 2013-14.
Sep 22 - 6:36 AM

Dany Heatley is looking forward to getting a shot to play alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

"My job is to get in shape and be ready to play with those two guys," Heatley said. "I know those guys, and I've played with both of them, particularly [Getzlaf]. I love playing with the guy. He's one of the best players in the League, as is Corey Perry. We'll see what Bruce wants to do. But my job is to be ready to go and be ready to get a chance with those two guys." The Ducks hope that Heatley's veteran leadership will rub off on some of the team's younger players as well. He recorded just 12 goals and 28 points in 76 games last season with Minnesota, but could be worth a look if he spends extended time alongside Getzlaf and Perry.
Sep 1 - 6:17 PM

Anaheim coach is cautiously optimistic about off-season additions Dany Heatley and Ryan Kesler, according to a report from's Curtis Zupke.

Heatley is expected to get a chance to play with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, but that could end up just being a training camp trial. The situation does warrant attention, so keep an eye on how the trio does when they get a chance to play together. We wouldn't get our hopes too high on Heatley, though.
