As you can see in the (terrifying) video, Peverley collapsed on the bench and within seconds the Dallas medical staff was on the scene. The situation is currently being called a "Cardiac Event" and required a Defibrillator to bring his heartbeat back to a regular rhythm. Peverley lost consciousness and when he woke he was aware of where he was and wanted to get back into the game. The game was postponed, the scene at the American Airlines Center was described as "somber" as fans quietly filed out of the arena. Peverely was diagnosed with earlier in the season, and was actually held out for the issue last game before being medically cleared to play yesterday. Our thoughts and well wishes go out to Rich Peverley, his family and the Dallas Stars organization
