That is scary, indeed, especially for someone who well remembers the Jiri Fischer incident.

Our thoughts and prayers are with him.

Terrible.  Scary.  Best of wishes to he and his family.

Or Chris Pronger collapsing.  Or Scott Mitchell collapsing.  Or…

I’ll ask, not to make any kind of point but because I’m genuinely curious.  What kind of hockey is he playing in July?  Do the local rinks keep rec leagues going up there go year-round or something?  He’s a 23 year old NHLer/AHLer, what can he play?  I’m just curious because they made it sound like it was some kind of organized hockey…
