UPDATE: After Surgery, Heatley Out for Year

April 9, 2013 Updated Apr 9, 2013 at 7:46 PM CDT

St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Wild forward Dany Heatley underwent surgery on his left shoulder on Tuesday morning and will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 season, the team announced on Tuesday evening.

That news contradicts earlier reports that Heatley was aiming to return by the end of the regular season following the surgery.

Heatley was injured on April 3 at the end of a road game against San Jose when he was involved in a confrontation with the Sharks' Marc-Edouard Vlasic.

Having played in 36 games this regular season, Heatley finishes with 11 goals and 10 assists for the Wild.
