0 0

Dallas Stars centre Rich Peverley has been hospitalized after collapsing on the bench in the middle of a game Monday.

The game against the Columbus Blue Jackets was halted at 13:37 of the first period when players began shouting for the refs to stop play.

Peverley was rushed away as both teams and fans at American Airlines Center waited in silence. The Stars and Blue Jackets eventually left the ice entirely.

A public address announcement was made several minutes later that the 31-year-old Peverley was conscious and taken to the hospital. Officials later postponed the game.

The NHL later released a statement saying Peverley was in stable condition.

There was no immediate announcement of when the game would be made up. Columbus was leading 1-0.

Peverley missed the start of the season because of a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat, a condition diagnosed during a training camp physical.

The Guelph, Ont., native, who was traded by Boston to Dallas in July, has seven goals and 23 assists in 62 games.

Peverley has 84 goals and 157 assists in 442 NHL games with Dallas, Nashville, Atlanta and Boston.
