Stoll gives Kings a scare with seizure

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll suffered a seizure Wednesday morning and was rushed to a hospital but appears to be doing fine, the team said.

"Everything is OK. They've run some tests and they still had another one to run," Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told The Los Angeles Times. "The bottom line is that he's fine. Now the issue is what caused it. There are a myriad of things that can cause them."

Stoll was expected to be released later Wednesday after more tests.

The 31-year-old suffered a concussion in the second round of the playoffs this year on a hit from San Jose forward Raffi Torres and sat out the remainder of the series with the Sharks. Stoll returned to play against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference finals.

During the 2013 regular season, Stoll had seven goals and 11 assists.

Stoll also had a seizure during the 2006-07 after sustaining a concussion while playing for the Edmonton Oilers.
