Thrashers goaltender Ondrej Pavelec was released from the hospital Sunday and is resting at home.
After losing consciousness and collapsing minutes into the team’s season-opening game Friday, Pavelec remained hospitalized for testing over the past three days. All tests were normal and, currently, the cause of the incident remains unknown. He suffered headaches from a concussion sustained after hitting his head on the ice.
“My heart looks good. My brain looks good. Everything is normal but we still have to find out what it is,” Pavelec told the AJC Saturday.
Pavelec was placed on injured reserve when the team re-called Drew MacIntyre from AHL Chicago as a replacement.
