Report: Heatley to have shoulder surgery
Report: Minnesota Wild's Dany Heatley to have shoulder surgery.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Sunday that forward Dany Heatley will have arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder.

The procedure reportedly will be performed in Cleveland.

Heatley dislocated the shoulder when he was driven to the ice during an altercation with the San Jose Sharks' Marc-Edouard Vlasic during a game April 3.

The newspaper reports that the Wild hope surgery will speed up Heatley's return date, with the hope he's able to make it back prior to the end of the regular season.

Heatley has 11 goals and 10 assists in 36 games this season.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
