DALLAS (AP) — The game between Dallas and the Columbus Blue Jackets is being delayed in the first period after Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench.

Play was halted 6:23 into the game Monday night as Peverley was carried from the bench. A public address announcement was made several minutes later that the 31-year-old Peverley was conscious and taken to the hospital.

The NHL was discussing whether the game would resume Monday.

Peverley missed the start of the season because of a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat, a condition diagnosed during a training camp physical.
