Heatley scratched from Wild lineup in Game 1 against Avalanche


Dany Heatley will not play for the Minnesota Wild tonight. He’s a healthy scratch for Game 1 against the Colorado Avalanche.

The 33-year-old Heatley, who is in the final year of a six-year $45 million contract, has seen his scoring numbers drastically decline over the years. Once a 50-goal scorer, he recorded only 12 goals and 28 points in 76 regular season games.
