Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley is out of the hospital and spending time with his teammates three days after he collapsed on the bench during a game.
The team said Peverley was released from St. Paul University Hospital in Dallas on Wednesday night. He was with the team during practice Thursday at headquarters in suburban Frisco.
Peverley is out for the season and will soon go to Cleveland for a procedure to fix an irregular heartbeat that was diagnosed in training camp. He collapsed during the first period Monday night against Columbus. The game was postponed.
The 31-year-old decided not to have the procedure after the diagnosis. He chose a less invasive adjustment and medication.
Peverley missed a game last week when he didn’t feel well.
Stars right winger Alex Chiasson was also hospitalized in Dallas on Monday night as a result of what coach Lindy Ruff called “anxiety associated with what happened” to Peverley. Chiasson did not travel to St. Louis for Tuesday’s game.
“[Chiasson] was shaken by the whole event, emotionally shaken,” Ruff said. “He wasn’t doing very well, so we thought it best to get him under some care.”
Chiasson, whose locker is beside Peverley’s, practiced with the team Thursday and is expected to play Friday night against Calgary.
