Hit in the eye with a puck, broken orbital bone but should regain full sight.

Shows the risk of playing in Europe for a 10th of your NHL salary!!

Regards
Philip - who could live comfortably on a 10th of Heatley's salary + bonuses :-)

Actually, the Swiss require players wear a visor (Heatley was) which is not required in the NHL, so this could be considered a freak accident. The puck was actually shot by a teammate.

Who does not know how much of Heatley's salary and bonuses will be left after defending himself against the vehicular manslaughter charges for which he has to face in Atlanta on November 29th...

Isn't this excatly what happened to Yzerman? Seems like more eye protection would be a good idea.
