SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Dany Heatley said he enjoyed his first day of practice with the San Jose Sharks on Friday.
The 28-year-old left winger was introduced at a press conference in San Jose, where he said he wants to put the past behind him and move forward.
The former 50-goal scorer was traded to the Sharks, along with a fifth-round pick in 2010, for forwards Jonathan Cheechoo and Milan Michalek and a second-round 2010 pick.
Heatley, named the top rookie in 2002, owns the Senators team records for goals (50) and points (105) in a season.
Heatley, who has 260 goals and 283 assists in 507 regular games split between Atlanta and Ottawa, is due to make $8 million this year.
