Los Angeles Kings' Jarret Stoll Suffers Seizure, Taken to Hospital

One of the Los Angeles Kings’ centers was taken to the hospital today after suffering a seizure.

Jarret Stoll suffered a seizure this morning on Wednesday morning, but it appears that he will be okay and released as soon as tonight.

“Everything is OK. They’ve run some tests and they still had another one to run,” Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told The Los Angeles Times. “The bottom line is that he’s fine. Now the issue is what caused it. There are a myriad of things that can cause them.”

Stoll played in 60 games for the Kings this season, scoring a total of 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists). He only scored one point in postseason play, in Game 4 of the series against the St. Louis Blues, and only played in one game of the series against the San Jose Sharks when he suffered a concussion.

The center was a second round draft pick by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He was traded with Matt Greene to the Kings in 2008 for Lubomir Visnovsky.
