Coyotes' MacLean suffers 'cardiac emergency'

Brett MacLean stricken during pickup game, admitted to cardiac intensive care unit.


GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Coyotes forward Brett MacLean is in intensive care at a Canadian hospital after the team said he suffered a "cardiac emergency" during a pickup hockey game.


Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said the 23-year-old MacLean received CPR on Monday night at the rink in Owen Sound, Ontario. He was taken to a hospital by ambulance, then transported by air ambulance to Knight University Hospital in London, Ontario where he was admitted to cardiac ICU.


Maloney said no other information was available Tuesday.


MacLean was Phoenix's second-round draft pick in 2007. He played 13 games for the Coyotes in the 2010-11 season.


He was claimed off waivers by Winnipeg last Oct. 5, then waived by the Jets 23 days later. Phoenix reclaimed MacLean and assigned him to AHL Portland.
