Get well soon, Brett. Something you never want to see happen to anybody.

It happened rather quick. He was playing a men's pick up game with Chris Minard and Mac just collapsed on the ice. They needed to use an AED and he was transported to an Owen Sound hosipital and later he was airlifted to London, ONT.


The Coyotes found out when Chris contact his brother and Pirates' goalie coach Mike Minard who informed Treliving.


I'll know more tomorrow.
Thanks for sharing with a group of concerned fans Wildcat, much appreciated.

Unreal, hope for the best for him. AP looked like it was improving, but in ICU is never a good thing.

???

He has improved considering the use of CPR and an AED helped in seeing to it he didn't die before getting to a hospital. The ICU has help him get to stable condition and his condition can go either way based on what Wildcat 48 has shared with us.

Just because someone is in the ICU, that doesn't mean they are in critical condition and the latest news proves this.

Also, I never said he made a full recovery either. I said that the latest news is encouraging at best.
Geez!!!!

Only 23 years old.

Pretty impressive that there was an AED on site and someone who knew how to do CPR and use an AED, though. Kudos to whoever helped.

Every year around this time in Arizona, there is an organization that helps get high school kids tested for heart defects and I believe is credited for potentially saving quite a few lives. Obviously, I have no idea what caused this event, but I do hope NHL organizations have this kind of testing program in place for all of their players.

I was just thinking about that but a long the lines that the NHL should put their players through some sort of medical test, dealing with the heart. And, no I'm not talking about a simple stress test. Something that will give even better test results. Who knows how many players might be playing with a bad heart and don't even know it.

My prayers got out to Brett and his family. Also to the people that were there and had to witness this. I was a bit shocked when I saw the news about him, after seeing him play for so long here.

Now the rumor is that it may not have been a heart attack. He's reportedly stable and they are doing further testing to figure out what it is.

I think a lot of times everyone assumes that athletes are going to have great cardiac health - after all, they get so much exercise, and if there were something wrong with their hearts, it would show up in small ways somewhere along the way. Except that it doesn't - we see news stories frequently enough of someone dropping dead of a previously undiagnosed heart issue that nobody ever through to check for because the person was so seemingly healthy.

I've seen it more with basketball players, but I know it's happened in other types of athletes. We just had one here in AZ - I forget the details, but wasn't there a European athlete training here in AZ and they died of a heart attack at a young age? It was in the last few months.

Wow, I was out last night came home to hear about this happened just after I walked out the door. Scarey stuff, I hope he's getting better and recovers. All I could think about was Jiri Fischer, sadly enough.

Your right. In fact, along with being active one must be able to have plenty of rest(6-8 hours minimum uninteruptted sleep)in order to have a heart to function well. Plus, some of these heart tests(ekg, stress test) are not 100% accurate.

Very close comparison from what I've been told.... It seems like something in his body overloaded, and like a fusebox, he blew a breaker and thankfully the people at the arena in Owen Sound knew what to do.

I've been told that things are looking better for him each passing hour.

Premature comment, unless of course you are a cardiologist who has examined him.

He's doing better... He walking around slowly. He has no memory of the incident at all. From what I've been able to gather he suffered no neurological damage or heart damage, but the doctors plan to begin some the test to find out what happened today. I'm not a doctor, but it sounds like an electrolyte imbalance or something in his body overloaded and like a breaker panel in our homes, he blew a breaker and his heart just stopped.

Again... Thankfully the people on scene knew what to do or we could be talking about a whole different outcome.

Than you for the update. The guy is trying to make the jump to the NHL. I wouldn't be surprised to hear he used a bad combination of supplements or too much of something (hopefully a legal substance).
