Prior to tonight's scheduled American Hockey League game between the Toronto Marlies and Texas Stars, assistant coach Rob Davison experienced a medical emergency in the visitors dressing room at HEB Center in Cedar Park, Texas. Davison, 39, was transported immediately to hospital. He is currently being evaluated and will remain under medical supervision.
"Following what happened tonight with Rob in front of our players and staff, I consulted with Laurence Gilman, Greg Moore and the leadership group of the Marlies," said Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas. "I was informed by the leadership group that the entire team was in a state of shock and not comfortable proceeding with tonight's game. We fully support our players and staff in this matter."
"The Maple Leafs would like to thank the Stars' medical team and the HEB Center staff for their urgent care."
