There was a very scary moment over the weekend when the Arizona Coyotes' Craig Cunningham collapsed on the ice prior to a game in the American Hockey League between the Tucson Roadrunners and the Manitoba Moose.

The cause for the collapse is still unknown, but considering that he is a 26-year-old professional athlete it was obvious a major cause for concern and as a result Cunningham was rushed to hospital where he currently remains at this time.

The Coyotes have been extremely tight-lipped about the incident refusing to provide any details out of respect for the Cunningham family, but on Monday we got something from head coach Dave Tippett. According to Craig Morgan of AZ Sports Tippett has stated that Cunningham is currently in critical condition, but added that his condition is stable.

Obviously critical condition is not something good two days after the original incident occurred, but the fact that his condition is now stable is a positive sign. We are hoping Cunningham makes a full recovery.

Update: Fromgeneral manager John Chayka:

"Our staff did a phenomenal job in terms of their response. The care he's receiving now is unbelievable"
