Wednesday July 4th, 2012

Scary news out of Phoenix, where general manager Don Maloney issued the following statement about forward prospect Brett MacLean:

"Brett was playing hockey last night in Owen Sound, Ontario when he suffered a medical emergency. 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."

Officially the team is calling MacLean's situation a "cardiac emergency."
