In conjunction with former forward and current Player Development Coordinator Rich Peverley, the Stars will host Pevs Protects Night to help raise both funds and awareness for the American Heart Association through the Dallas Stars Foundation on Saturday night.
Prior to the game against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night, Peverley will be accompanied by Stars Color Analyst Daryl "Razor" Reaugh to deliver his survivor story to fans in the AT&T Plaza outside of American Airlines Center at 6:30 p.m. He will then take part in the ceremonial puck drop prior to the start of the game. Stars players will utilize red tape in honor of the American Heart Association throughout the game. During the first intermission of the game, Peverley will sign autographs for fans in attendance outside of Section 113 on the concourse.
Peverley suffered a cardiac incident that led to his collapse on the bench in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, March 10, 2014. His heart condition ultimately led to his retirement from the game of hockey and he currently serves as the Stars Player Development Coordinator.
