The NHL has postponed Monday night's game between the Blue Jackets and the Dallas Stars after a medical emergency caused Stars forward Rich Peverley to collapse on the bench.

Peverley has been taken to hospital and is conscious following the episode.

From Columbus Blue Jackets President of Hockey Operations John Davidson, who announced the cancellation of the game on the Fox Sports Ohio broadcast:

They're going to cancel the rest of tonight's game. The league has been in concert with both teams, and there are a lot of people very shaken by what happened to Peverley at the bench. The good news is he's okay. The medical people did an awesome job, the medical staff from both teams, just did the job. That's the good thing. 

The players, especially the Dallas players, are very shaken as to what happened. They discussed it with their players, and the decision was made that they're shaken, and they'd like to reschedule. And we certainly understand that...

The game will reportedly be played at a later date.
