Dany Heatley wore this white jersey while playing for the Atlanta Thrashers during the 2002-2003 National Hockey League Season. This jersey has been photo-matched to the Thrashers' 7-4 win over the New York Rangers on November 28, 2002.

Heatley was wearing this jersey when he recorded three primary assists in a win on November 28, 2000 against the New York Rangers at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. The first goal was scored by Ilya Kovalchuk at 16:42 of the first period. The second was scored by Patrik Stefan at 18:13 of the second. The third goal was also scored by Stefan at 6:10 of the third, and it would stand as the game-winning goal as the Thrashers defeated the Rangers 7-4.

During his second season in the NHL, Heatley played in 77 games for the Atlanta Thrashers. He led the team with 41 goals, a mark good for sixth league-wide, and finished with a team-high 89 points. He scored the first two hat tricks of his career less than two weeks apart, on January 13 and January 25, 2003. Heatley was selected for his first NHL All-Star Game and was named the All-Star Game MVP after scoring four of his team's five goals and assisting on the fifth, and scoring the team's only goal during the shootout. His four goals during the game tied the All-Star Game record. Heatley finished fourth in voting for the 2003 All-Star Team at the Right Wing position.

Heatley was the Atlanta Thrashers' second overall pick in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft and the team's only winner of the Calder Memorial Trophy for the most proficient first year player in the National Hockey League. Over a 13-year NHL career, he played 869 games with five teams, finishing with 372 goals and 791 points. Playing for his country, Heatley won two Gold Medals and three Silver Medals with Canada at the IIHF World Championships, a Gold Medal at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, and an Olympic Gold Medal in 2010 in Vancouver.
