Rangers Deny Avery Was In Cardiac Arrest

Sam Weinman at the Rangers Report has this...

"Team sources are refuting a report that said Avery was in cardiac arrest. Instead, they said Avery was complaining about an injury after the game, and that he walked into the hospital with team physician Dr. Andrew Feldman."

John Dellapina at the Daily News adds...

"Avery's mother, Marlene, told The Toronto Sun that the injury occurred during a first-period collision with a Pittsburgh defenseman."

...while a lacerated spleen is nothing to sneeze at. It's good to hear that the earlier reports of a cardiac arrest were erroneous.
