Craig Cunningham collapsed before the Tucson Roadrunners' home game vs. the Manitoba Moose on Saturday night.
Cunningham, who is under contract with the Arizona Coyotes but is currently the captain of the Roadrunners, the Coyotes' American Hockey League affiliate, was taken off the ice on a stretcher and to a local hospital.
The Arizona Daily Star reported the game was postponed as a result of Cunningham's collapse.
According to the Star, "Medics worked on Cunningham, who was lying on his back, and cut away his jersey. They performed chest compressions before moving him off the ice."
