[Signing] Dany Heatley signs in German League

Recommended Posts

Dany Heatley signs in German League:

Looks like Dany Heatley is finally out of NHL chances.

Heatley, a two-time former 50-goal scorer, has signed with the Nurnberg Ice Tigers of Germany’s Deutsche Eishockey Liga, the club announced on Thursday.

Heatley, 34, spent most of last year in Anaheim but only appeared in six games for the Ducks before getting shipped to Florida, where he finished out the year with the Panthers’ AHL affiliate.

A three-time All-Star and former Calder winner as rookie of the year, Heatley has been on a steady decline for a while now. Injuries and a decrease in skating ability have kept him from being a regular contributor; while he still had a pretty good shot and release (he scored 24 goals for Minnesota in ’11-12), Heatley found it increasingly difficult not just getting it off, but finding the space for quality scoring opportunities.

With Nurnberg, Heatley will join a team featuring a number of ex-NHLers, including David Steckel, Kurtis Foster, Steven Reinprecht, Brandon Segal and Colin Fraser.

Here is the quote from the team website, pretty funny stuff;


"Den THOMAS SABO Ice Tigers ist es gelungen, mit Dany Heatley einen absoluten NHL-Superstar nach Nürnberg zu holen. Er erhält einen Vertrag bis Saisonende"

according to Google, this means;

"The Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers have managed to bring with Dany Heatley an absolute NHL superstar to Nuremberg. He receives a contract until the end of season"

Also, I couldn't resist adding this picture from the team website, couple good old boys right there!
