GLENDALE, Ariz. – Phoenix Coyotes forward Brett MacLean's condition is improving less than a week after he suffered a cardiac emergency during a pickup hockey game in Canada.
Coyotes general manager Don Maloney issued a statement Monday saying MacLean's family reported he is doing well and will continue to undergo tests with the cardiology team at Knight University Hospital in London, Ontario.
The 23-year-old MacLean received CPR at a rink in Owen Sound, Ontario after suffering the cardiac emergency. He was taken to a local hospital and later flown to the hospital in London, where he was admitted to the ICU.
A second-round draft pick in 2007, MacLean played most of last season at Portland of the AHL after Phoenix claimed him on waivers from Winnipeg.
