Former Bruin Rich Peverley collapses during Stars game, is conscious

Former Bruin Rich Peverley [1] collapsed on the bench during the first period of Monday night’s Stars-Blue Jackets game and was rushed to the hospital. The Stars tweeted that Peverley is conscious, though. The game was postponed following the scary situation.


Peverley missed the start of the season [4] following a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat, and then missed another game last Tuesday [5] with similar issues. It’s unclear if Monday night’s incident is related to those previous issues.

Deadspin has video of the incident [6] if you want to see how it unfolded.

Update: Stars blog Defending Big D reports that doctors used a defibrillator on Peverley, and that upon regaining consciousness, Peverley said he wanted to go back in the game.
