Age: 30 (born Jan. 21, 1981, in Freiburg, West Germany)

Height: 6-4. Weight: 220

Position: right wing/

Drafted: Atlanta (second overall, 2000)

Highlights: He's one of the NHL's most prolific goal scorers, having twice gotten 50 in a season. Since entering the NHL in 2001, Heatley ranks first in power-play goals (128) and game-winning goals (58), third in goals (325) and fifth in points (689). He's done this in 669 games (1.03 points per game, .49 goals per game).

Did you know? The former Wisconsin Badger has dual citizenship to Germany and Canada and has played in two Olympics for Canada, winning gold in 2010. His father, Murray, played for the WHA Minnesota Fighting Saints in 1973-75.

Controversy: In 2003, Heatley crashed his Ferrari while speeding down a suburban Atlanta road. He was badly injured, and his Thrashers teammate, Dan Snyder, died days later. Heatley was charged with vehicular homicide and eventually pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges, was sentenced to three years' probation and was fined $3,000. Heatley has also requested trades out of Atlanta and Ottawa.
