The Anaheim Ducks have placed veteran forward Dany Heatley on waivers, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Monday.

The team has not announced the move. If Heatley is unclaimed by Tuesday, he could then be assigned to Anaheim's AHL affiliate in Norfolk.

Injuries have slowed the two-time 50-goal-scorer, who has no points in six games this season. The 13-year veteran signed a one-year contract with the Ducks in free agency in July.

In addition, the same source said the Buffalo Sabres have placed goalie Matt Hackett on waivers. Hackett has spent the past eight months rehabbing a right leg injury in Buffalo, and requires clearing waivers to be assigned to the Sabres' AHL affiliate in Rochester.
