Bulletin: Ottawa acquires Cheechoo, Michalek and a second-round draft pick in 2010 from San Jose for Heatley and a fifth-round pick in 2010
OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has acquired forwards Jonathan Cheechoo and Milan Michalek, and a second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for forward Dany Heatley and Ottawa’s fifth-round draft choice in 2010.

Cheechoo, 29, was San Jose’s second-round pick (29th overall) in 1998 NHL Entry Draft. In 440 career National Hockey League games, the right-winger has scored 165 goals, added 126 assists and 304 penalty minutes. He also recorded 35 points (16 goals and 19 assists) and 32 penalty minutes in 58 career playoff games.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Cheechoo won the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s leading goal scorer when he tallied 56 goals for the Sharks in 2005-06. Cheechoo was voted in as a starter for the 2007 NHL all-star game.

Michalek, 24, was San Jose’s first-round pick (sixth overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. In 317 career NHL games, the left-winger has scored 91 goals, added 123 assists and 184 penalty minutes. He has also recorded 16 points (10 goals and six assists) and 18 penalty minutes in 39 career playoff games.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Michalek recorded his third consecutive 20-goal season in 2008-09 when he scored 23 goals and added 34 assists in 77 games.

Heatley, 28, was acquired by the Senators from Atlanta on Aug. 23, 2005, in exchange for forward Marian Hossa and defenceman Greg de Vries. In four full seasons with Ottawa, Heatley ranks fourth all-time with the club in goals (180), seventh in assists (182) and seventh in points (362). He missed only nine regular-season games due to injury (all in the 2007-08 season).
