Is the only player in the history of the IIHF World Championship to win the MVP award twice -- in 2004 in Prague and in 2008 in Halifax/Quebec City.  He led the 2004 World Championship in goals (8) and the 2008 tournament in goals (12) and points (20).

Heatley will be playing for Canada for the 11th time -- he won gold medals at the 2004 and 2003 World Championships as well as winning the 2004 World Cup of Hockey tournament; won three World Championship silver medals (2009, 2008 and 2005) and two bronze medals at the World Junior Championship.

Was the Most Valuable Player of the 2004 World Championship, playing on a line with Brenden Morrow and Daniel Briere.

At the 2008 World Championship, he surpassed Steve Yzerman as Canada's all-time leader in World Championship scoring.  Played on a line with Rick Nash and Ryan Getzlaf at that tournament.

His 12 goals at the 2008 World Championship set a modern day Canadian record at the tournament - surpassing Eric Lindros' 11 in 1993.

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
