Heatley to minors on conditioning assignment

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Anaheim Ducks assigned forward Dany Heatley to Norfolk of the American Hockey League Thursday on a long-term conditioning assignment.

Heatley hasn't played since Nov. 9 and has been limited to four games this season because of groin issues, failing to record a point. He originally suffered the injury in the preseason and missed the first nine games of the regular season.

In other roster moves, the Ducks activated goaltender Jason LaBarbera from injured reserve, assigned defenseman Josh Manson to Norfolk and sent goaltender Igor Bobkov to Utah of the ECHL.
