The Thrashers have updated goalie Ondrej Pavelec’s situation in Atlanta. Pavelec collapsed during a break in play 2:25 into the first period of play against the Washington Capitals. Ben Wright from the Atlanta Thrashers provides this update on his condition.

Official word: Pavelec lost consciousness and was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. No other info yet.

Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution did report some good news.

I’m told Pavelec regained consciousness.

Pavelec laid on the ice motionless for at least 10 minutes with medical personnel attending to him before being taken from the ice on a stretcher. We’ll continue to monitor the situation as news is provided.
