Craig Cunningham Will Likely Be Discharged From The Hospital In The Next Few Days

from NHL.com,

Craig Cunningham, captain of the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League will likely be discharged from Banner University Medical Center Tucson before Christmas.

Cunningham, his mother Heather, Roadrunners general manager Doug Soetaert and several doctors will speak during a news conference at noon ET on Wednesday.

Cunningham, 26, has been hospitalized since collapsing on the ice before a game against Manitoba on Nov. 19. Medical personnel performed chest compressions before transporting him to Carondelet St. Mary's Hospital, where CPR was continued. Two days later, Arizona Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said Cunningham was in critical but stable condition. Tucson is the Coyotes' AHL affiliate.

Cunningham was soon transferred to Banner, where he received advanced life-saving therapy using ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation), a highly specialized procedure for patients so critically ill that no other support for the heart and lungs is adequate.
