Heatley Has Surgery
Dany Heatley is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder today in Cleveland, according to the Star Tribune.
Heatley reportedly dislocated the shoulder when he was driven into the ice last Wednesday. Wild coach Mike Yeo told the Star Ttribune that Heatley isn’t certain to miss the rest of the regular season and that the goal is to get him back quicker than would have been the case without the surgery.
Heatley is sixth on the Wild in scoring with 21 points and his 11 goals are third on the team.
Meanwhile on the ice, the Wild have a tough matchup tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks, who will come to Xcel with an impressive 29-5-4 record. The NHL-leading Blackhawks look for a third straight victory overall while the Wild are looking for back-to-back wins after defeating Columbus on Sunday.
