Newly hired Phoenix Coyotes assistant coach Dave King spent Tuesday night in a Seattle hospital.
Unconfirmed by the Coyotes, a source told sportsnet.ca the 61-year-old suffered what was believed to be a heart attack in the dressing room prior to a pre-season game in Seattle against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Paramedics worked on King as he was taken away on a stretcher.
added 5:29pm, The Bill Watters Show on 640am reporting it may have been low blood sugar.

Dave King’s wife Linda says the sportsnet.ca report of heart attack is “absolutely not true.” He was faint, but tests show his heart is fine
I have to say, pretty shabby reporting from Sportsnet.
