Terrifying, it really shows the togetherness these guys share as they all were visibly worried about him. Rivalries are manufactured.

So Richard Peverly collapses on the Stars bench, is carried into the tunnel, defibrillated, and once he regains consciousness asks Lindy Ruff how much time was left in the period & said he wanted back in......

Got to meet him and his family once, they are really awesome.  Adorable little son about the same age as mine.  Wife is way cool too.  I am glad he made it through, but I hope he gets better soon!

Peverly collapsed with a heart problem on the bench, postponing the game; Islanders scored 7 in the 3rd against Vancouver, rallying from 3-0; Leafs won against Anaheim on the road. What the ever-loving fark happened to the hockey world tonight?

I could not have put that any better myself.

I've never been witness to another sport where a player will get stitches (sometimes on the bench) to stay in the game.

I remember one of my first hockey experiences, sitting in the stands behind the bench. Sat there watching a full grown man spit out multiple teeth, flash his buddies a toothless grin, and continue playing.

Later Peverly was quoted as saying "Tis but a scratch" and "I've had worse" and also "It's just a heart. I've got a spare."

That's my point. An entire soccer team would be dead while a hockey player is pissed about missing a second of ice time.

The player in the pic was probably worried about not watering his plants that morning.

No need to apologize. I could have made my point better from the get go.

I didn't see it, but from the reports I heard it sounded alot like the Red Wings Fischer incident (minus the chest-compressions on the bench).  Peverley's career is probably over.

Similar thing happened to Jiri Fisher in 2005 in a Detroit/Nashville game. He survived but never got to play again. I think he's doing office work for Detroit now.

Having met him at one of the Alumni sessions before the Winter Classic this year, he almost looked like he felt out of place.  Didn't think to say so at the time, but I'm sure he's indirectly saved quite a few lives, since if it wasn't for him, we may not have defibrillators in public gathering places.

Wanting to play in a game after heart failure is more of a sign of being an idiot than 'tough'

I guess that's the end of Peverley's career. Very sad, but at least he got to step on the ice, raise the Stanley cup... it's far more than most hockey players ever got to do.

I'd say it's more a sign of being totally out of it because you just had to have your heart restarted and don't realize what just happened.

Hope you're wrong, but my guess is you're not.  Absolutely right about the Cup though, I'm glad he was able to hoist it before his time was done.

Also, I remember in the 2012 playoffs a Florida Panthers player collided with a teammate, basically split his face open from it.....they stitched him up and he was back in the game the next period.  Smallest fan base out of all the professional leagues but the toughest guys by far.

When I was in high school our JV football coach got fired after he screamed at a player who had a compound fracture: full on one sticking through the uniform with a lot of blood.

I am starting to wonder if this is a coincidence or something more. A local high school hockey player just passed away from a heart condition. That along with Jiri in 2005 leads me to wonder if its something more.
Unlike distance skaters these guys are exerting so much energy in 30-60 second shifts while taking hits and torquing the body in unusual ways. The local high schooler is just an awful story and I don't know if it hit fark or not.http://highschoolsports.mlive.com/news/article/-890362184748642331 1/gr andville-hockey-player-ryan-fischer-dies-on-day-team-plays-in-state-se mifinal/#/0They ended up losing the semi final game that same day and both teams were absolute class./Onions

Sorry man, just coincidence.  Both Fischer and Peverly had known heart conditions, and they aren't the only ones in pro hockey with them(Gustavsson comes to mind).  In each case it's a defect they've had their entire lives.

That's what I was thinking.  Clearly has heart issues and I am assuming this is it.  Played over 400 games, proved himself as a legitimate NHL forward, played in the finals, raised lord stanley wearing a spoked-b. Not bad for an undfrafted college guy.
 
2014-03-11 09:54:07 PM
Rough few days for the Stars, Lehtonen gets a big time concussion and now a top line guy almost farking dies on the bench! Peverley's playing days might be over, staying alive is more important than staying in a playoff race.

Richard Zhednik...  now of interest, his wife at the time divorced him, and ended up marrying another guy...  Dustin Penner.

Knocked out of commission reaching for a pancake she made him.  They're divorced now, with some nasty stuff rumored, but there you have it.
