<span class="txt18Strg">All-Star Profile </span><br /> <br /> <a href="#quick"><b>QUICK FACTS</b></a><br /> <a href="#he"><b>HE SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#they"><b>THEY SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#news"><b>IN THE NEWS</b></a><br /> <a href="#video"><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b></a><br /> <br /> <a name="quick"></a><b>QUICK FACTS</b><br /> Heatley has teamed with center Jason Spezza and right wing Daniel Alfredsson to form one of the NHL's highest-scoring lines in recent years -- the trio is poised to rank 1-2-3 on the Senators in scoring for the fourth consecutive season. Heatley recorded his 500th career NHL point with his assist on Jason Smith's overtime winner on Dec. 20 against Dallas in a 5-4 win. <br /> <br /> Were it not for a shoulder injury last January that sidelined him for 11 games, Heatley likely would have finished among the League's top 10 scorers for the fourth time in five seasons in 2007-08. Heatley finished the season 15th overall with 82 points (41 goals, 41 assists) in 71 games. The injury also broke a streak of 207 consecutive regular-season games played since the start of the 2005-06 season. <br /> <br /> Heatley starred at the 2008 IIHF World Championships in May, earning tournament MVP honors after leading all scorers with 20 points (12 goals, eight assists) and a +13 rating in nine games as Canada won the silver medal. He became the first player to win the award twice, having captured the 2004 MVP in Prague. <br /> <br /> Heatley tied an NHL All-Star Game record and earned MVP honors in 2003 at Florida by tallying four goals and an assist for the Eastern Conference in a 6-5 victory by the Western Conference. He added a goal in the shootout tiebreaker. At 22 years, 12 days, Heatley became the youngest player to score three or more goals in an All-Star Game. <br /> <br /> <a name="he"></a><b>HE SAID IT</b><br /> On playing a complete game: &quot;My job is to do what I do offensively, but I also want to bring more than that. There have been times in the last three years where I've been in some of those situations (penalty kill) or last minute of the games ... I'd like that to continue and increase.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br /> Senators forward Nick Foligno: &quot;You look at him, and he doesn't have to say much, but you just know he's such an elite player in this league. He doesn't demand respect, but he just gets it, because of the way he acts. It's great having a guy like him to learn from. It's not so much what they say, it's more what they do.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a href=";id=3627569">Hockey fans, meet the new Dany Heatley</a><br /> <br /> <a name="video"></a><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b><br /> <a href=";id=20325">Heatley feature</a><br /> <br /> <span class="txt14Strg">Career All-Star Game Statistics </span> <div style="border: 1px solid rgb(161, 161, 161); margin: 4px 0px; padding: 0px; float: left; width: 660px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" id="asstatsbox"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" class="asstat"> <tbody> <tr class="headrw"> <td>SEASON</td> <td>TEAM</td> <td>Score</td> <td>R</td> <td align="center">GP</td> <td align="center">G</td> <td align="center">A</td> <td align="center">PTS</td> <td align="center">+/-</td> <td align="center">PIM</td> <td align="center">PP</td> <td align="center">SH</td> <td align="center">GW</td> <td align="center">SOG</td> </tr> <tr> <td>2002-03</td> <td>East</td> <td>5-6</td> <td>L</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">4</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">5</td> <td align="center">3</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center" class="right">6</td> </tr> <tr> <td>2006-07</td> <td>East</td> <td>9-12</td> <td>L</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">2</td> <td align="center">3</td> <td align="center">4</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center" class="right">4</td> </tr> <tr class="totrw"> <td colspan="4">All-Star Totals</td> <td align="center">2</td> <td align="center">5</td> <td align="center">3</td> <td align="center">8</td> <td align="center">7</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center" class="right">10</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> <script type="text/javascript">jQuery(function(){ jQuery('#asstatsbox').corner('6px'); });</script>
Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
