Heatley Releases Statement

Requesting a change of environment was an extremely difficult decision. After a tremendous amount of reflection and numerous conversations with my family, it made the most sense to seek a change. I would sincerely like to thank the fans of Atlanta. I enjoyed an amazing few years in the area and was embraced by everyone in the community. I feel fortunate to have come into the NHL with Atlanta and will always be proud to say I was a Thrasher. The Thrashers have acquired a world-class player in Marian Hossa. All in all, this is a win-win situation for everyone and I wish the best of luck to the entire Thrashers organization and my teammates. I appreciate the support the organization has given me over the years and I'd like to thank them for honoring my request. My teammates, the fans and community will always hold a special place in my heart.
