The Dallas Stars say Rich Peverley has undergone successful surgery to correct an abnormal heart rhythm, just more than a week after the forward collapsed on the bench during a game.

Stars general manager Jim Nill says Peverley was released from the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday, a day after surgery.

Peverley is expected to return Thursday to Dallas. He will be monitored closely and may require further treatment.

The 31-year-old Peverley chose for less invasive treatment after an irregular heartbeat was diagnosed during training camp.

Nill says there is “no decision being made at this time” on if Peverley will play hockey again. He is out this season.

Peverley collapsed during the first period March 11 against Columbus. The game was postponed and will be made up April 9.

Daily the father waited for his lost son to come home. When he came, he saw him from afar: “he ran to meet him” (Luke 15,20). The son was staggering, but the old father was running. Hear the Word of the Lord: For every step you take to Jesus, Jesus takes ten steps to you. He loves you! Why did the father run? He did not want his son to change his mind and return to the pigs. Never again! Jesus saves sinners! And He will save you too. God bless you. REINHARD BONNKE
