The Dallas Stars announced that forward Rich Peverley underwent a successful heart procedure on Tuesday to correct an abnormal heart rhythm.

Peverley underwent cardiac arrest on the Stars' bench during a March 10 games against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The team announced that Peverley would be out for the season two days later.

"Rich Peverley underwent successful surgery to correct an abnormal heart rhythm at the Cleveland Clinic on Tuesday, March 18," said Stars general manager Jim Nill in a statement. "He is currently in normal sinus rhythm. He was released from the Cleveland Clinic today and is expected to return to Dallas tomorrow. He will be monitored closely and may require further treatment. There is no decision being made at this time on his ability to return to hockey participation."

Prior to the beginning of the season, Peverley, 31, underwent surgery for an abnormal heartbeat and missed the final three weeks of training camp and the exhibition schedule.

In 62 games this season, the Guelph, Ontario native had seven goals and 23 assists.
