Among the bevy of new faces on the Ducks roster this season is big veteran winger Dany Heatley, who signed a one-year deal with Anaheim back in July. The 33-year-old Heatley is embarking on his 13th season in the NHL, having spent time in Atlanta, Ottawa (where he got familiar with the Ducks during the '07 Final), San Jose and Minnesota (where he spent the last three campaigns).
Heatley (nicknamed "Heater") is already off to a (we'll say warm) start in Anaheim, having potted two preseason goals, including one last night in LA.
We found out a little more about his personal side a few days ago after a camp practice:
