Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley visited with his teammates Thursday after being released from the hospital Wednesday night.

"He walked in the back and started shaking hands, and he didn't get far, he was kind of swarmed," Stars forward Ray Whitney told the Dallas Morning News. "We didn't shake hands so much as we all hugged him. It was an emotional moment."

Peverley, who is scheduled to have surgery at the Cleveland Clinic to remedy the heart issue that caused him to collapse on the bench during a game Monday against the Columbus Blue Jackets, will wear a monitoring vest at home, according to the newspaper.

"He just seems completely normal, but we all know it's more serious than that," Whitney said. "But it's such a great thing to have him here and to know he's OK. He has a lot of things he has to do, but from where he was to where he is now, it's great to see him."
