Scary stuff from the Phoenix Coyotes: forward Brett MacLean experienced a “cardiac emergency” while playing hockey in Owen Sound, Ontario on Monday night. Here are the full details from Coyotes GM Don Maloney via the Coyotes’ press release:

“Brett was playing hockey last night in Owen Sound, Ontario when he suffered a medical emergency,” Maloney said.. “Brett received CPR on site and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance where he was treated. He was then transported via an air ambulance to Knight University Hospital in London, Ontario where he was admitted to the cardiac ICU. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brett and his family. We request that everyone please respect their privacy at this time. We will provide an update on Brett’s status when information is available.”

We’ll keep an eye out for updates on MacLean’s condition.
