I found the disorder I was thinking of: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The wikipedia entry was heavy on the medical-ese, but there was a list of athletes believed or suspected to have died of it, including Sergei Zholtok and Mickey Renaud. If you remember back at this year's draft, Matt Carle's brother was drafted by Tampa after being told he can't play sports anymore, I'm pretty sure this is what he was diagnosed with.

Here's a very good SI article about it:
