danyheatleyTSN is reporting that Dany Heatley finally got his wish and is now being shipped out of Ottawa to the Sharks.  In return, Ottawa gets 20-goal scorer Milan Michalek, former 56-goal scorer Jonathan Cheechoo, a 2010 second round draft pick, and one less headache for GM Bryan Murray.

Heatley (39G 33A in 2008-09)  joins a sharks lineup boasting scorers Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau and could flourish under offensive-oriented head coach Todd McLellan.

Be sure to check out the updated Senators and Sharks season previews for the fantasy implications of this deal.
