Police estimated that Heatley was driving his black Ferrari convertible between 60 and 90 mph on a curved road in a residential area when it ran into a brick pillar and iron fence on Sept. 29, 2003.
Dan Snyder (search), 25, died after several days in a coma, and Heatley broke his jaw and tore two ligaments in his knee. He returned to play with the team in January.
"All of us have driven too fast at one time or another, but this case involves extreme speed," county prosecutor Paul Howard said Friday in announcing the indictment.
Heatley, the MVP of the 2003 National Hockey League All-Star game, was in Canada on Friday preparing for the upcoming season, the team said. He was not immediately available for comment.
Authorities said Heatley had consumed some alcohol but was not intoxicated at the time of the wreck.
There is no mandatory prison sentence for the crimes, giving the judge considerable discretion, Howard said. A probation sentence is one option, he added.
Howard said he would not seek to have Heatley held in jail.
