Stars Peverley in stable condition and resting
The Dallas Stars were playing the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday and during the game Peverley lost unconsciousness at his bench. The team was much concerned over the scare and was in much better moods when they came to know he was in stable condition and would be just fine.
General manager Jim Nill said that tests were underway to get a proper diagnosis to pin point exactly what happened. For now, they knew what he was suffered was a typical cardiac arrest (heart attack) but were looking into what could have caused it.
"He is currently undergoing testing to discover what triggered the cardiac event last night.”
Nill said that they were doing their best to resolve the issue and by getting a better understanding of what had happened they could easily treat Peverley and get him healthy and on the ice as soon as possible.
"The focus of all the testing and monitoring is being dedicated to finding the cause of the event and a long-term solution to rectify the problem."
Nill added that Peverley knew about the fans that were supporting his recovery and was thankful for all that they had done for him.
"He is extremely grateful for all of the prayers and support that he's received from fans and friends alike," said Nill.
The game on Monday being played at American Airlines Center was halted once the incident took place during the first period. Peverley took to the bench after finishing his shift and after that he simply collapsed there. The medical crew present took charge and seeing the matter as serious immediately rushed him to a hospital.
After the incident the game was called to an end with no decision.
