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.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
