The entire NHL and AHL community has former NHL player and current Arizona Coyotes American Hockey League player Craig Cunningham in their thoughts today.

The 26-year old center for the Tucson Roadrunners was warming up before the teams game Saturday night against the Manitoba Moose in Tucson when he suddenly collapsed to the ice--appearing to hit his head. According to reports, he went into convulsions and trainers had to cut away his jersey to treat him on the ice. 

He was rushed to a Tucson hospital where he remains. The Coyotes organization issued a statement late Saturday night about the incident which caused the game between the Roadrunners and the Moose to be cancelled...

There was reaction throughout the NHL from both current and former players all whom know Cunningham--
