DALLAS (AP) - Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley is undergoing testing to determine what triggered his collapse during a game.
General manager Jim Nill said Tuesday that Peverley is in stable condition and has been communicating with teammates and friends since he was hospitalized Monday night. The Stars' game against Columbus was postponed in the first period after Peverley went down on the bench, stunning the crowd and players.
Nill said doctors are focused on finding a long-term solution to Peverley's irregular heartbeat. The condition was diagnosed in training camp, and he underwent a procedure that sidelined him for the preseason and the season opener.
The 31-year-old Peverley also missed a game last week in Columbus because of the effects of the condition. He played in two games before Monday night.
