Jim Nill On Rich Peverley

via the Dallas Stars,

Rich Peverley is resting comfortably and being monitored at UT Southwestern St. Paul. He is currently undergoing testing to discover what triggered the cardiac event last night.

The focus of all the testing and monitoring is being dedicated to finding the cause of the event and a long-term solution to rectify the problem.

We do not have any more specifics at the moment.

Rich has been communicating with his teammates and friends. He is extremely grateful for all of the prayers and support that he’s received from fans and friends alike.

Don’t rush anything.  If they can’t nail anything down firm…. I hate to say it, but he needs to just stop playing.  Just not worth the risk.  He’ll be glad years later.

It’s really not encouraging that he had surgery once to “correct” things, and this still happened.

So frightening.  I am glad that he is o.k.

Time to be more cautious than optimistic. Hope he makes a full recovery, but a game is not worth it.
