Wild Has Their Scorer

From Michael Russo at the Star-Tribune:

Heatley scored 26 goals and 64 points last season for the Sharks. That’s not a down year for most, especially when you consider those numbers would have led the Wild.

But this is Dany Heatley—a two-time 50-goal scorer, a point-a-game player, someone who possesses one of hockey’s most toxic shots.

General Manager Chuck Fletcher is confident Heatley will fill the net.

“His track record speaks for itself,” Fletcher said. “He’s a proven goal scorer.”
