At St. Joseph's Hospital, the 22-year-old Heatley will undergo a series of tests, including an MRI on his left shoulder and right knee. Grady Hospital had treated him for a fractured left jaw.

Heatley was the driver in a one-car accident Monday night that left teammate Dan Snyder unconscious and in critical condition.

Snyder's condition had not changed as of late Thursday afternoon, according to Thrashers team physician Dr. Scott Gillogly and Snyder's neurosurgeon, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Police estimated that Heatley's Ferrari was traveling around 80 mph when he lost control on a curve in a two-lane road. The car plunged into a wrought iron and brick wall in front of an apartment complex.

The car was ripped in half. The players were thrown onto the road.

Heatley broke his jaw and will have MRI tests on his left shoulder and right knee as well. He also has a bruised lung and a bruised kidney.

Following the accident, Snyder underwent two hours of surgery for a brain injury.

Heatley is expected to make a full recovery. He faces a felony charge of serious injury by vehicle and three misdemeanor charges. Before his transfer from Grady Hospital, Heatley posted a $50,000 bond, set during a hearing involving a prosecutor and Heatley's attorney.

Heatley was the NHL rookie of the year in 2002 and scored a team-record 41 goals last season.
