David Shoalts passes along some good news on Phoenix Coyotes forward Brett MacLean: his condition is improving after a cardiac emergency on Monday. In fact, his agent Anton Thun said he was “conscious and speaking” on Wednesday.

“He’s conscious and he’s speaking,” Thun said. “They anticipate taking him out of intensive care [tonight] and running tests to determine why he collapsed.”

It’s great to hear that MacLean’s showing improvement, but identifying the cause for the problem will be key if he hopes to resume his hockey career at some point. That remains to be seen, but this is good news overall.
