Ducks beat writer Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reiterated Anaheim's interest on Wednesday via Twitter.
"Does appear to be a potential real match between Ducks and Dany Heatley," he tweeted. "Could happen as soon as today."
Heatley, 33, is coming off a six-year, $45 million contract. His next salary could fall in and around the neighborhood of $2 million.
In 76 games with the Minnesota Wild last season, Heatley registered 12 goals and 16 assists for 28 points.
