Kings' veteran forward Jarret Stoll was rushed to a hospital early Wednesday morning from an apparent seizure. Fortunately, GM Dean Lomabrdi told Lisa Dillman of the LA Times that Stoll seems to be alright:

“Everything is OK. They’ve run some tests and they still had another one to run,” Lombardi told The 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.”

This is unsettling news for a player that has now suffered several reported concussions in his NHL career. The latest of which was delivered by Sharks forward Raffi Torres this past post-season. Stoll said after that incident that it took him "a good seven or eight days" to shake off headaches. He also suffered two in 06-07 with Edmonton. The second of which caused him to miss the final 30 games of that season.

Here's to hoping Jarret Stoll recovers and that the organization treats this situation with diligence.
