Phoenix Coyotes prospect's conditions are now stable.

Forward Brett MacLean, 23, of the AHL Portland Pirates, suffered a “cardiac emergency” during a pick-up hockey game in Owen Sound, Ontario on Tuesday night.

After the first aid at the rink, MacLean was taken to a local hospital and then later transported by air ambulance to Knight University Hospital in London, Ontario, where he was admitted to the intensive care unit.

Yesterday Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney has issued the following statemen:

"Brett was playing hockey last night in Owen Sound, Ontario when he suffered a medical emergency, he received CPR on site and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance where he was treated. He was then transported via an air ambulance to Knight University Hospital in London, Ontario where he was admitted to the cardiac ICU. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brett and his family. We request that everyone please respect their privacy at this time. We will provide an update on Brett's status when information is available."

Today, with a short message on his  twitter, hockey analyst and former player Nick Kypreos said: "Brett MacLean is in stable condition and remains in I.C.U. He will undergo further tests to determine cause of his collapse."
