    Good news today out of Dallas, where Stars GM Jim Nill revealed that forward Rich Peverley “underwent successful surgery to correct an abnormal heart rhythm at the Cleveland Clinic” on Tuesday afternoon.

    “He is currently in normal sinus rhythm,” Nill said. “He was released from the Cleveland Clinic today and is expected to return to Dallas tomorrow. He will be monitored closely and may require further treatment.”

    Peverley is out for the season after suffering a cardiac event on the bench during a game between the Stars and the Blue Jackets on Mar. 10. Nill says “no decision” has been made on any potential return to hockey in the future.

    The game was postponed after the incident and has since been rescheduled for Apr. 9.

    Medical experts took less than 15 seconds to revive Rich Peverley after the Dallas Stars forward collapsed on the team’s bench in a scary scene on Monday night.

    And they owe that success to plans implemented by the NHL in the wake of a similar cardiac event that felled Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jiri Fischer back in 2005.

    “It wasn’t one doctor that saved Rich’s life that night,” said Dr. William J. Robertson. “It was the system. It’s a credit to the NHL, to the Dallas Stars for where they put us. These are expensive seats. They put us right behind the bench where we can see the ice at all times and be close enough to act.”

    Stars General Manager Jim Nill has released the following statement:

    “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.”

    I was at American Airlines Center tonight as forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the Stars’ bench and the game was subsequently postponed. The following is my rapid reaction to the events that transpired: 

    The play had just entered the Columbus zone when I heard sticks slamming against the boards.

    My first thought? Too many men on the ice. The guys always do that to get the attention of the officials on a bad change. The Stars had the puck so I started counting white sweaters. Two … three … but before I could get to five the sound had taken on urgency. The banging wasn’t just insistent now. It was frantic. I looked over to the benches and saw players from both sides pouring over the boards. A brawl? I heard someone near me say, “There’s an injury.” I looked around. There was no one down on the ice.

    Monday night’s game between the Dallas Stars and Columbus Blue Jackets was postponed after Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed suddenly on his team’s bench, sending teammates and coaches into a panic. Peverley was attended by medical officials before being transported to a local hospital, where he is now conscious and in stable condition, according to reports.

    MUIR: Scene of confusion, fear inside arena

    The incident occurred just 6:23 into the first period, and both teams rushed to the Dallas bench while yells for paramedics could be heard. The players were evidently shaken up, gathering at center ice for several minutes before exiting the ice. The game was delayed for almost an hour before the postponement was announced.

    It’s one thing when a player gets traded and fans don’t know what to do with their old jerseys. It’s a completely different ballgame when a team is planning a bobblehead night for one of its marquee players and then decides to trade said player before the night actually happens. What do you do with those 7,500 bobbleheads?
