Ottawa paramedics said the 40-year-old man was playing hockey at Kanata’s John Mlacak arena around 12:30 p.m. when he collapsed after coming off the ice.
They said his teammates and an off-duty nurse started CPR and used a defibrillator from the arena to shock his heart.
When paramedics arrived they said the man had a pulse and was breathing on his own. They stabilized him and then brought him to hospital.
