Report- Dave King Suffered A Heart Attack

via Sportsnet,

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.

The best suggestion, let’s wait for an official word on this.

added 5:58pm, via Aaron Portzline’s Twitter,

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.
