As news spread regarding the condition of Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley after he collapsed on the team's bench in the first period of a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night, players, coaches and teams took to social media to offer their support.
The game was halted 6:23 in after Peverley was quickly carried from the bench. It was later announced that Peverley was conscious and taken to a hospital.
