NHL Player Collapses on the Bench From Apparent Heart Attack

Posted: Updated:

Scary moment at an NHL game in Dallas Monday night.  

About six and a half minutes into the game between the Dallas Stars and the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets, attention turns from the game on the ice to the commotion on the Stars' bench.  
Members of the Stars' staff were carrying center Rich Peverley into the locker room following his apparent collapse from a cardiac event on the Dallas bench.  
According the Dallas Stars' official Twitter account, Peverley was conscious as he left the American Airlines Arena for the hospital and asked to be put back in the game.  
The NHL later made the decision to postpone the game.  
The 31-year old Peverley has had a recent history of heart issues, having missed a game just last week due to an irregular heart beat.  
The heart condition caused Peverley to miss the entire pre-season as well.
