SAN JOSE, Calif. --
San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced Saturday that the team has acquired left wing Dany Heatley and a fifth round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for right wing Jonathan Cheechoo, left wing Milan Michalek and San Jose’s second round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Heatley, 28, finished ninth in the League in goals (39) while playing in all 82 games for Ottawa in 2008-09. He ranked third on the team in points (39-33=72) and led the team in both power play (15 – 7th in NHL) and game-winning goals (6).

The seven-year veteran has appeared in 507 career regular season games with Ottawa and Atlanta. During that span, he has registered 543 points (260-283=543) and 99 power play goals. He’s surpassed the 40-goal plateau four times and twice hit 50 goals (2005-06 and 2006-07).

In three trips to the postseason, Heatley has posted 35 points (10-25=35) in 34 games. He appeared in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2006-07 and was tied for the postseason lead with 22 points (7-15=22).

Heatley won the Calder Trophy and was a member of the NHL All-Rookie Team in 2002. He was named to the NHL First All-Star Team in 2007 and the NHL Second All-Star Team in 2006. He has made four All-Star Game appearances in his career (2003, 2007, 2008 (did not play), 2009).

He has represented Canada at several international tournaments including the Olympics (2006), World Championships (2002, 2003-gold medal, 2004-gold, 2005-silver, 2008-silver, 2009-silver), World Cup of Hockey (2004) and World Junior Championships (2000, 2001). He is the all-time leading goal and point scorer for Team Canada and was named World Championships MVP in 2004 and 2008. He was also invited to attend the selection camp for the 2010 Canadian Olympic Hockey team.

Prior to his NHL career, Heatley spent two seasons at the University of Wisconsin from 1999-2001. While there, he garnered several accolades including being named to the following: WCHA First All-Star Team (2000); WCHA Rookie of the Year (2000); NCAA West Second All-American Team (2000); WCHA Second All-Star Team (2001); NCAA West First All-American Team (2001).

The six-foot-four, 220-pound native of Freiburg, Germany was originally selected by Atlanta in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft (1st round, 2nd overall). He was traded to Ottawa in exchange for Marian Hossa and Greg DeVries on Aug. 23, 2005.

Cheechoo, originally selected in the second round (29th overall) by the Sharks in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, leaves ranked fifth on the Sharks all-time points list with 291 (165 goals, 126 assists), third in goals and 10th in games played (440). He also notched 304 penalty minutes and scored 62 power play goals.

He has scored the fourth-most goals of any player who has entered the NHL since his rookie season in 2002-03 and won the 2006 Maurice “Rocket’ Richard Award as the NHL’s top goal scorer, setting a Sharks franchise record with 56 goals.

Michalek, a first round selection by San Jose (6th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, posted 57 points last season (23 goals, 34 assists) in 77 games. In 317 career NHL games, all with San Jose, Michalek has posted 214 points (91 goals, 123 assists) (ninth on the Sharks all-time list) and 184 penalty minutes.
