Jarret Stoll hospitalized after suffering seizure

The Kings' center was hospitalized and underwent a battery of tests after suffering a seizure on Wednesday.


Jarret Stoll suffered a seizure in his home on Wednesday morning, according to Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi. Stoll was rushed to the Little Company of Mary Hospital, where he underwent tests and is expected to be released from later in the day.

"Everything is OK. They’ve run some tests and they still had another one to run," 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."

Lombardi's update remains the only news on Stoll's status so there is no word on the severity of his condition. That he is returning home today is an indication that it is not something overly serious.

Stoll missed six games in the playoffs after suffering a concussion in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals. He returned for the start of the Western Conference Final and played all fives games in the series, but it was not his first concussion, having missed the final 30 games of the 2006-07 season after being concussed with the Edmonton Oilers.. There is no indication that the concussion and seizure are in any way linked at this time.
