Dominant Dany Heatley has turned out to be a dud.

The former Senators winger, who demanded a trade out of Ottawa in 2009 because he felt his role had diminished under Cory Clouston, was made a healthy scratch for the first time in his career Saturday night in Phoenix.

Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo told the Star Tribune “we’re not done with him. We’re going to need him again.”
