Avery taken to hospital in cardiac arrest
 
New York Rangers forward Sean Avery was rushed to a Manhattan hospital on Wednesday morning in cardiac arrest just hours after his team's playoff loss, the New York Daily News reported, citing unnamed sources.



Avery was unconscious and not breathing, the newspaper reported.


A source at St. Vincent's Medical Center said Avery, 28, arrived at about 3 a.m. Wednesday morning. Hours earlier, the Rangers lost 5-3 in the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Madison Square Garden.


A source close to the team confirmed Avery had been rushed to the hospital, but declined to offer any specifics, the Daily News reported.

MSG just released a statement saying it happened during last nights game.

The Rangers said Avery was admitted to St. Vincent's Medical Center following a CT scan and is expected to make a full recovery, but he will not play again in the playoffs.
