Scary situation unfolds as Coyotes forward Brett MacLean has ‘cardiac emergency’

From TSN:

The Phoenix Coyotes say that forward Brett MacLean suffered a cardiac emergency on Monday night in Owen Sound, Ontario.

“Brett was playing hockey last night when he suffered a medical emergency,” said Coyotes general manager Don Maloney in a statement. “Brett received CPR on site and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance where he was treated. He was then transported via an air ambulance to University Hospital in London, Ontario where he was admitted to the cardiac ICU.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Brett and his family,” Maloney continued. “We request that everyone please respect their privacy at this time. We will provide an update on Brett’s status when information is available.”

MacLean played in five games this past season for the Winnipeg Jets, registering two assists.
