Tim Heed (born January 27, 1991) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing under contract with the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Heed was originally selected by the Anaheim Ducks 132nd overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing careerEdit

Heed was a product of Södertälje SK and made his debut in the top-tier Swedish Hockey League (SHL) with the club during the 2009–10 season. In the following years he also spent time on loan with the Växjö Lakers and the Malmö Redhawks in the second highest ice hockey league in Sweden, HockeyAllsvenskan, and in the SHL.

In 2013, he joined SHL side Skellefteå AIK and won the Swedish championship in his first year with the team. In 2014–15 and 2015–16, he reached the SHL finals with Skellefteå, while receiving SHL Defenseman of the Year honors in 2014–15.[1] Heed also competed in the Champions Hockey League with the team.[2]

With his NHL rights not retained by the Anaheim Ducks, Heed was signed as a free agent by the San Jose Sharks on a one-year, two-way contract on May 24, 2016.[3]

Personal lifeEdit

Tim's father Jonas Heed, who also played defence, was selected by Chicago in the sixth round of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft.[4]
