The Phoenix Coyotes say that forward Brett MacLean suffered a cardiac emergency on Monday night in Owen Sound, Ontario.

"Brett was playing hockey last night when he suffered a medical emergency," said Coyotes general manager Don Maloney in a statement. "Brett received CPR on site and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance where he was treated. He was then transported via an air ambulance to University Hospital in London, Ontario where he was admitted to the cardiac ICU.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Brett and his family," Maloney continued. "We request that everyone please respect their privacy at this time. We will provide an update on Brett's status when information is available."

MacLean played in five games this past season for the Winnipeg Jets, registering two assists.

The 23-year-old spent the majority of 2011-12 in the American Hockey League with the Portland Pirates, where he had 25 goals and 23 assists in 63 games.

He has appeared in 18 NHL games with Winnipeg and Phoenix, where he compiled two goals and three assists. He was selected by the Coyotes in the second round of the 2007 Draft.
