Jackets-Stars PPD due to Peverley medical issue
Monday, 03.10.2014 / 9:12 PM / News
By Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent


DALLAS -- In the first period of the Dallas Stars’ game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night, Dallas center Rich Peverley was carried from the Stars bench to the locker room with an undisclosed medical issue. Peverley was skating on the Stars’ top line alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin before the game was stopped at 13:37.

The game has officially been been postponed. A decision about the remainder of the game will be made at a later date by the NHL.

Peverley, 31, had apparently collapsed on the bench several seconds prior, and the Dallas players were banging their sticks on the boards in front of their bench trying to get the officials’ attention so they would stop play.

Peverley, who joined Dallas in July 2013 via a trade with the Boston Bruins, missed all of training camp and the Stars’ Oct. 3 season opener against the Florida Panthers after having a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.

Peverley did not travel with the team to Columbus for their game last Tuesday, one the Stars lost 4-3. He was listed as out for that game with an upper-body injury. However, Dallas coach Lindy Ruff confirmed after morning skate last Thursday that Peveley’s absence was tied to his heart condition from earlier in the season.

After the game was delayed for approximately 15 minutes, each team headed to its locker room.

Peverley has been taken to a local hospital and is conscious.

Columbus was leading 1-0 when the game was postponed.

He appears to be fine, very uncomfortable to watch.
Extremely scary situation with his heart, good to see him conscious.

Very scary stuff. You think that's it for him in the NHL? Not to be melodramatic but after Alexei Cherepanov... I don't know. If I'm a GM/coach/owner he's got to pass a HELL of a lot of tests before I put him back on the ice again.

I was thinking the same thing, hope it doesn't come to that but you don't mess with things like your heart.

He missed a game for his heart last week. Seems its a known thing.

The video that Deadspin posted was terrifying. The silence in that arena, so much so that you can hear someone say, 'We need an ambulance.' It does bring to mind the Cheraponov situation a few years back. But the NHL definitely has a plan for these matters and you could see how quick they got him out of there. So happy he's doing okay and I hope for his quick recovery.
