Rich Peverley


Rich Peverley knows he wants to play hockey again.

Whether his health will allow him to, though, remains less certain.


Just a week after collapsing from a cardiac event during a game, Dallas forward Rich Peverley, a former Bruin, underwent successful heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.


UPDATE: Peverley has been shut down for the rest of this season will undergo a heart procedure designed to correct his irregular heartbeat condition at the Cleveland Clinic.
