St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Wild forward Dany Heatley underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder early Tuesday morning, that according to a report by Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo has no updated timetable for Heatley's return, according to Russo, but does hope he will return before the end of the regular season.

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 currently has 11 goals and 10 assists to place him sixth on the team with 21 total points.
