Ottawa Senators forward Dany Heatley asking to be traded

Dany Heatley's tenure with the Ottawa Senators may be nearing an end.

Several media outlets reported Tuesday that Heatley has asked for a trade out of Ottawa, less than two years after signing a US$45-million, six-year deal with the Senators.

Heatley had an off-year by his standards, scoring 39 goals and adding 33 assists in 82 games last season. It's his lowest point total in four seasons with the Senators, after coming to Ottawa in a trade with the Atlanta Thrashers in 2005.

The new contract may make Heatley difficult to trade, since he'll count for $7.5 million against a team's salary cap.
