There has been a shocking incident in the ECHL on Friday night. 

Former National Hockey League player turned Tulsa Oilers head coach Rob Murray collapsed during the Oilers' game against the Quad City Mallards on Friday night, at this time the cause is believed to be a heart attack, although we have yet to hear official confirmation of that fact. 

Play by play voice of the Tulsa Oilers John Peterson is in the ambulance with coach Murray and according to him the coach is alert and is able to communicate which appears to be a good sign at this time. 

Murray is a former Washington Capitals third round draft pick who also played for the Winnipeg Jets and the Phoenix Coyotes before moving on to become a coach in the American Hockey League and the ECHL. 

We hope he is going to be alright, and furthermore we hope he is able to make a full recovery. Stay tuned for updates.
