Disgruntled Senators forward Dany Heatley to speak to media Friday

KELOWNA, B.C. - Dany Heatley will break his silence Friday about his rocky relationship with the Ottawa Senators.

He's been in hockey limbo since requesting a trade from Senators general manager Bryan Murray in the spring.

Heatley's agent, Stacey McAlpine, announced Thursday the 28-year-old forward will speak on a conference call and also at a news conference Friday in Kelowna, B.C., where Heatley lives in the off-season.

The former 50-goal scorer is among 46 men invited to the Canadian Olympic team orientation camp starting Monday in Calgary.

The Edmonton Oilers tried to obtain Heatley in a trade last month, but the winger refused to waive his no-trade clause.

Heatley requested the trade one season into a US$45-million, six-year contract extension, but has yet to publicly say why he wants out of the Canadian capital.
