Hamilton Bulldogs coach 'in good spirits' after collapsing
BARRIE, Ontario (AP) — The Hamilton Bulldogs say head coach Dave Matsos is "resting comfortably" at a hospital a day after collapsing on the team bench during a game.
The 44-year-old Matsos collapsed in the final seconds of Saturday's Ontario Hockey League game between the Bulldogs and Barrie Colts. He was attended to by on-site paramedics and taken to hospital to undergo tests.
The team said in a statement Sunday that Matsos will have further tests done and "he is doing well and in good spirits."
The team said it will provide further updates when more information is available.
Matsos is behind the Bulldogs' bench for a second year after serving as assistant coach in 2017-18. He is in his 10th season coaching in the OHL after spending time with the Windsor Spitfires and Sudbury Wolves.
Hamilton was leading 4-2 when the game was called Saturday night. The Bulldogs were awarded the victory.
