Mario in Hospital

Lemieux to stay overnight for observation

Pittsburgh Penguins owner-player Mario Lemieux was hospitalized Wednesday for observation of an irregular heartbeat, general manager Craig Patrick said.
Lemieux will be monitored overnight in the undisclosed hospital and won’t play Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild. The team said his playing status will be day to day after that.
According to Patrick, Lemieux reported having an irregular heartbeat after practice.
“We thought the best precaution was to have him enter the hospital for observation,” Patrick said.
