KELOWNA, British Columbia (AP) -Dany Heatley says he wants the Ottawa Senators to trade him because he's not happy with his diminished role on the team.

Heatley spoke Friday during a conference call, the first time he's commented publicly since he asked for a trade in the spring.

The winger signed a six-year contract extension less than two years ago. But he says his role has changed, especially in the last two seasons.

The former 50-goal scorer says if he's still a Senator next month, he will report to training camp.

Heatley is among those invited to the Canadian Olympic team orientation camp starting Monday in Calgary.
