Peverley Collapses, NHL Game Called Off

Peverley Collapses, NHL Game Called Off

A hockey game between the Dallas Stars and the Columbus Blue Jackets was postponed Monday night after a player suddenly collapsed on the bench.

Before the season started, Dallas Stars' forward Rich Peverley underwent a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat. He missed a game last week, relating to the same problem.

Another big scare happened Monday night when he collapsed on the bench early in the game against Columbus. Doctor for the team say the 31-year-old suffered a cardiac event.

“We provided oxygen for him. We started an IV. We did chest compressions on him and defibrillated him,” Dr. Gil Salazar said.

“If it wasn't for our doctors reacting so quickly and so efficiently, we all could be standing here with a different story,” Stars Head Coach Lindy Ruff said.

Peverley regained consciousness and emergency crews transported to a nearby hospital. He remains in stable condition.

The game will be rescheduled for later in the season.
