Jiri Fischer was given CPR at the bench by team physician Dr. Tony Colucci before the 25-year-old native of the Czech Republic was removed on a stretcher. The game was called off with no makeup date immediately announced.
“His heart was stopped,” Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “They hooked up the auto defibrillator and shocked him.”
Team spokesman John Hahn said Fischer was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital and was stable, breathing on his own and responsive. Fischer met with his teammates and coaches and was described as jovial and in good spirits. He will remain in the hospital for further testing over the next two days.

    We had a similar scare during our last pens game on Saturday night. Jones ripped one, a couple of players on the bench started convulsing and the time keeper passed out. The plastic on the bench where he was sitting melted. He imediately started calling players off the ice for a line change.
