DALLAS - Rich Peverley doesn't know when he and his doctors will decide whether he can resume his career after he collapsed during a game because of an irregular heartbeat.

The Dallas Stars won't be pressing their 31-year-old forward for an answer.

Peverley said Tuesday before he and his teammates scattered for the summer that he would have to undergo testing that would include workouts to elevate his heart rate. Training camp is about five months away.

Coach Lindy Ruff and general manager Jim Nill said all decisions would be up to Peverley and his doctors.

Peverley went down on the bench early in a game against Columbus on March 10 and had to be revived by medical personnel at the arena.
