Dany Heatley injury: Minnesota star done for the year

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Heatley's shoulder injury will keep him out for the rest of the season and the playoffs.

Dany Heatley will miss the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Heatley hasn't played since being injured in a game against the San Jose Sharks on April 3, and Tuesday the star winger underwent shoulder surgery.

Heatley's initial injury occurred while tangling with San Jose's Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Vlasic incurred a fine for slashing Heatley during the altercation, though it is believed that Heatley's injury actually occurred when he fell to the ice, rather than from the slash itself.

Heatley had eleven goals and ten assists through 36 games for the Wild this season.
