Report: Heatley refuses to waive no-trade clause, nixes Oilers deal

Ottawa Senators winger Dany Heatley refused to waive his no-trade clause and killed a deal that would have sent the former 50-goal scorer to Edmonton, according to several media reports published Thursday.

The trade, first reported Tuesday, would have sent Heatley to the Oilers in exchange for centre Andrew Cogliano, winger Dustin Penner and defenceman Ladislav Smid.

The Senators had hoped to get a deal done by midnight Wednesday to avoid paying Heatley a scheduled US$4-million bonus, but the deadline reportedly passed without the sniper agreeing to waive his non-movement clause in order to allow the trade to go through.

Heatley twice scored 50 goals for the Senators but requested a trade after the regular season because of a rift with coach Cory Clouston.

His trade demand that comes less than two years after he signed a US$45-million, six-year deal with the Senators.

Heatley has reportedly given the Senators a list of destinations where he would agree to be traded. Edmonton was not believed to be on the list.
