A scary moment put hockey on the back burner ahead of Saturday's AHL contest between the Tuscon Roadrunners and the Manitoba Moose, as Roadrunners captain Craig Cunningham collapsed moments before puck drop.

Medics cut Cunningham's jersey as he laid on his back, and performed chest compressions before he was taken to a local hospital. The Arizona Coyotes, the Roadrunners' parent club, announced they'll provide an update when they receive information.

The game has been postponed with no makeup date announced.

Cunningham, 26, was drafted in the fourth round by the Boston Bruins in 2010, and has spent the last three seasons in the Coyotes organization.
