Daniel "Dany" James Heatley (born January 21, 1981, in Freiburg im Breisgau, West Germany) is a Canadian professional ice hockey winger currently playing for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers second overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, he won a Calder Memorial Trophy as the top NHL rookie in 2002. However, after being infamously responsible for a car accident in the summer of 2003 that killed teammate and close friend Dan Snyder, he requested a trade and was subsequently dealt to the Senators, where has played since.
As one of the Senators' leading scorers for several seasons, Heatley has set franchise records for single-season goals and points. He usually plays left wing with teammates Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson. The line, named by fans, is known as the 'CASH' (referring to Captain Alfredsson, Spezza, Heatley) line or 'Pizza' line, referring to a Pizza Pizza 'free slice' promotion on nights the Senators score six or more goals at home.
Internationally, Heatley has represented Team Canada in five World Championships, one Olympics and one World Cup of Hockey, as well as two World Junior Championships. In
