Heinen will become a free agent after not receiving a qualifying offer from Anaheim on Monday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Since he was acquired from the Bruins in February of 2020, Heinen scored just 10 goals and 18 points with a minus-14 rating in 52 games with Anaheim. The 6-foot-1 forward racked up 16 goals and 47 points during his 2017-18 rookie season but hasn't shown much of that offensive flash since. At 26 years old, Heinen should still be able to find an NHL role as a free agent this offseason.
Heinen scored a goal on two shots and added two assists in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Kings.
Heinen had arguably his best game as a Duck on Saturday. He scored in the second period, then assisted on goals by Nicolas Deslauriers and Max Jones. The 25-year-old Heinen has struggled this year with just 14 points in 39 contests. He's added 70 shots on net, 31 hits and a minus-8 rating. With little to show for the campaign, the Canadian forward has played in a bottom-six role lately.
Heinen managed an assist and two hits in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.
Heinen set up a long-range goal by Jamie Drysdale in the second period. The 25-year-old Heinen has struggled to produce consistent offense in 2020-21 -- he has 11 points, a minus-9 rating, 67 shots on net and 31 hits through 37 contests. It's all but certain this will be the worst campaign of the forward's young career.
Heinen scored a goal on four shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
Heinen ended an eight-game goal drought with his second-period tally. The 25-year-old forward has just 10 points through 34 contests this season. He's moved all over the lineup and occasionally out of it when his performance is sub-standard.
Heinen posted an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.
Heinen set up Adam Henrique for the opening tally at 5:55 of the first period. The 25-year-old Heinen has two points in his last five games since he returned from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. For the year, the Canadian forward has nine points, 50 shots on net and a minus-4 rating in 28 outings.
Heinen scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 5-2 loss to Colorado.
Heinen got the Ducks on the board midway through the first period, working himself open on the doorstep and finishing off a Maxime Comtois centering feed to tie the game at 1-1. It was Heinen's fifth goal of the year but just his second point in the last nine games. The University of Denver product has been unable to replicate the offensive promise he showed during his 47-point rookie season in 2017-18 with Boston, totaling 68 points in 169 games since.
Heinen cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Heinen will rejoin the team and should enter the lineup for Friday's road game versus the Blues. The 25-year-old typically plays in the bottom six, though he usually slots in on the power play as well. Heinen has recorded seven points -- one with the man advantage -- through 23 games this season.
Heinen (COVID-19 protocol) was placed on non-roster injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Heinen was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, and he didn't play in Wednesday's game against the Wild. There's no clear timetable for his return. The 25-year-old has recorded seven points through 23 games this season.
Heinen was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear whether Heinen tested positive for the virus or simply was a close contact to an infected person. The Ducks canceled practice Tuesday after four players were placed in COVID-19 protocol. For now, Wednesday's game against the Wild is still on the schedule.
Heinen scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Avalanche.
The 25-year-old Heinen has found playing time sparse lately, as he's appeared in only five of the last 13 contests. He played on the fourth line Tuesday, although he saw a healthy 14:09 of ice time. Heinen has seven points, 37 shots on net, 16 hits and 17 blocked shots in 21 games.
Heinen posted an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Wild.
For the second straight game, Heinen set up Sam Steel for a goal. Those two, along with Jakob Silfverberg, accounted for the Ducks' second line Thursday. Heinen now has six points, 31 shots on goal, 12 hits, 13 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 16 games. He'll need to maintain chemistry with his linemates to make a better impact on the scoresheet -- so far, he's scored too infrequently to surface on the fantasy radar.
Heinen managed an assist in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.
Heinen set up Sam Steel for the Ducks' opening tally in the first minute of the first period. In primarily a second-line role, Heinen has amassed just five points, 30 shots on goal and a minus-2 rating through 15 contests. Outside of deeper formats, there's little reason for fantasy managers to follow Heinen's progress.
Heinen scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Kings.
Heinen deposited his third goal in the last five games in the first period of Tuesday's contest. The 25-year-old is up to four points, 22 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 11 outings. He's shown better chemistry with Jakob Silfverberg in recent performances -- those two wingers were centered by Sam Steel on Tuesday. That trio that could stick together as head coach Dallas Eakins desperately tries to spark the team's offense moving forward.
Heinen scored a power-play goal and added two hits in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Coyotes.
The Ducks' power-play inefficiency was at 0-for-18 when Heinen tallied the game-tying goal 8:57 into the third period. That's a good way for the 25-year-old to earn himself more time on special teams. Heinen is up to three points, 17 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through eight games, so there's not much need for fantasy managers to rush to the waiver wire.
Heinen potted a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Coyotes.
Heinen capitalized on a turnover by Drake Caggiula in the first period, and John Gibson made it stand for a Ducks win. The tally was Heinen's first of the year -- he's added one assist, 16 shots on goal and a plus-1 rating in seven appearances. A lackluster team offense has limited Heinen's contributions so far, but he'll likely remain in a middle-six role for most of the year.
Heinen posted an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.
Heinen and the Ducks' second line got out of the starting blocks Friday, as he relayed from Jakob Silfverberg to goal-scorer Adam Henrique in the third period. It's been a painfully low-scoring start to the campaign for the Ducks, who have just eight goals in five games a team. Heinen has just the one assist to go with 10 shots on goal and five blocked shots in that span.
Heinen contributed 26 points in 67 games this season.
Heinen was only able to record four points in nine contests after being moved from Boston to Anaheim in February, but the 24-year-old's scoring rate of 0.39 points per game is certainly useful in deeper settings. He received over two full minutes of additional ice time in Anaheim (16:21 versus 14:11 in Boston), so it'll be interesting to see what he does with the expanded role next season. Heinen hasn't quite shown the promise of his 47-point rookie effort in 2017-18, but there's plenty of fantasy potential here in deeper settings.
Heinen potted a goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild.
Heinen has done well since he joined the Ducks at the trade deadline -- the 24-year-old winger has four points in seven games with his new team. He's up to 26 points, 106 shots and a minus-1 rating through 65 contests overall this year. Heinen is seeing consistent top-six minutes with the Ducks, which makes him worth a look in DFS for Tuesday's contest against the Senators.
Heinen scored a goal on four shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Heinen now has two goals, an assist and nine shots on net over four games with Anaheim. He's fitting in well with the new team, and although it's a small sample, he's averaged 17:41 of ice time -- 3:30 more than he did in Boston. The increased opportunities make him an intriguing fantasy option in deep leagues heading into the playoff period.
Heinen scored a goal on two shots and supplied two hits in Friday's 3-2 win over the Penguins.
Heinen has a goal and an assist through two games as a Duck. His first-period tally opened the scoring Friday. The 24-year-old has notched 24 points, 92 shots and a plus-4 rating in 60 games between the Ducks and Bruins this season.
