Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital early Wednesday morning after suffering a seizure in his Hermosa Beach home, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Kings general manager Dan Lombardi told the Times Stoll is expected to be released from Little Company of Mary Hospital later Wednesday after a battery of tests.

From the Times:

Everything is OK. They've run some tests and they still had another one to run," Lombardi told The Times. "The bottom line is that he's fine. Now the issue is what caused it.

"There are a myriad of things that can cause them."

Stoll, 31, suffered a concussion on a hit from Sharks forward Raffi Torres in the opener of the Kings’ second-round playoff series against San Jose. Torres was suspended for the remainder of the series -- won by the Kings -- and the Sharks were fined $100,000 for general manager Doug Wilson's comments criticizing the decision. Stoll sat out the remainder of that series but returned to play in the Western Conference finals against the Blackhawks.
