Calgary Flames defenseman TJ Brodie has been discharged from a local hospital and is doing well in recovery at home with his family following a scary incident at practice, the club announced Thursday night.

The blue-liner collapsed and started convulsing during the team's on-ice session earlier in the day, according to CTV's Glenn Campbell.

Flames general manager Brad Treliving released the following statement Thursday afternoon:

"TJ Brodie experienced an episode on ice at practice today. He is alert and responsive and has been transported to local area hospital for evaluation. We will provide a further update when available. Thank you."

The 29-year-old was standing by himself during a drill when he collapsed, Kristen Anderson of the Calgary Sun added.

He has played his entire 10-year career with the Flames.

The Flames will provide another update on Brodie's condition Friday.
