Pittsburgh Penguins star Mario Lemieux has been admitted to hospital after experiencing an irregular heartbeat. The Penguins say he had the problem after practice and will spend the night in hospital for observation. “Mario experienced an irregular heartbeat after practice today, and we thought the best precaution was to have him enter the hospital for observation,” said Penguins general manager Craig Patrick.

Last week, Lemieux missed a team practice so he could be examined by a doctor. At the time, the team said the problem was related to his flu bout. "They kind of fit him in for a checkup," coach Eddie Olczyk said on Nov. 30. "He said he was feeling fine, and just wanted to make sure he's being looked after."
