The Los Angeles Kings had a scary moment on Wednesday morning when forward Jarret Stoll was rushed to the hospital after suffering a seizure.

Thankfully, Kings GM Dean Lombardi told Lisa Dillman of the LA Times that Stoll is doing fine.

"Everything is OK. They've run some tests, and they still had another one to run," Lombardi told the Times. "The bottom line is that he's fine. Now the issue is what caused it.

"There are a myriad of things that can cause them."

Equally good is the news that Stoll is expected to be released on Wednesday. They hopefully will figure out what the cause of the seizure was once the test results come in. Fingers crossed it was nothing too serious and that it won't be an issue moving forward.

Stoll, 31, had seven goals and 11 assists this season for the Kings. He suffered a concussion in the second round of the playoffs on a hit from Sharks forward Raffi Torres that resulted in Torres being suspended for the remainder of the series. Stoll did return for the Western Conference finals against the Blackhawks.
