Ducks send Heatley to AHL on conditioning assignment

3 Comments

A day after news surfaced that Ducks’ forward Dany Heatley underwent groin surgery, the club assigned him to the American Hockey League’s Norfolk Admirals on a long term injury conditioning loan.

Heatley, who signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Ducks in the off-season, is pointless in four games with Anaheim this season.

Additionally, defenseman Josh Manson was assigned to Norfolk and goaltender Igor Bobkov was sent to the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL.

Manson has an assist in 18 games with the Ducks this season.

Bobkov, who was most recently recalled by the Ducks on Dec. 1, has yet to make his NHL debut.
