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.
