Dany Heatley, the newest member of the San Jose Sharks, will speak at an afternoon news conference today at 3:30 pm ET. The news conference will be aired live on the NHL Network and streamed live on NHL.com.
The Sharks acquired Heatley, a two-time 50-goal scorer, from Ottawa on Sept. 12 in a deal that sent forwards Milan Michalek and Jonathan Cheechoo to the Senators.
I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
