L.A. Kings play-by-play broadcaster Bob Miller suffered a mild stroke on Saturday, the club announced.

Miller, 78, was hospitalized Saturday after feeling discomfort prior to a live broadcast before the NHL All-Star Skills Competition in L.A.

“Bob Miller suffered a mild stroke on Saturday and was admitted to USC Keck Hospital where he currently remains,” said the Kings in a statement. “He is under the care of a team of specialized physicians, and he is doing well and in good spirits.”

Last January, Miller took a medical leave of absence to undergo quadruple bypass heart surgery.

He has been the voice of the Kings since 1973, and was honored in 2000 with the Foster Hewitt Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the game of hockey throughout his broadcast career.
