Heart issues and collapse
In September 2013, before the start of the Stars 2013-14 training camp, Peverley underwent a surgical procedure to help with an irregular heartbeat.  He missed 3 weeks but was ready for the start of the regular season.
On March 10, 2014, Peverley collapsed on the team bench, during a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Peverley, who missed time early this season with an irregular heartbeat, was taken down the tunnel just a few minutes into the game by the Stars staff.
The Stars gave more updates on Peverley's condition and it was indeed an issue with his heart. The NHL released the following statement later that night: "Dallas player Rich Peverley is doing well and is in stable condition. He was transported to the hospital. As a result of the emotional state of the players on both teams caused by the medical emergency, the game will be played at a later date." 
On March 12, 2014, the Dallas Stars announced that Rich Peverley would miss the remainder of the 2013-14 NHL season. 
I wonder if there were any heart issues while he was a Bruin.
