Click here for full story
The game was called off last night between Detroit and Nashville when Jiri Fischer collapsed on the bench during play. Radio reports note that game referee Don VanMassenhoven (a former Ontario Provincial Police officer) initiated CPR once it was apparent Fischer's heart had stopped beating.
Fischer is in hospital and in stable condition.

Life is short.
