Los Angeles Kings' centre Jarret Stoll was taken to an area hospital Wednesday after suffering a seizure at his home in Hermosa Beach, Calif.

According to Kings' GM Dean Lombardi, by way of Lisa Dillman of the LA Times, Stoll was rushed to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance early in the morning.

From the LA Times:

Lombardi said that a battery of tests was run on Stoll and that it was expected he would be released later in the day. He said Stoll was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance and Lombardi visited him there later Wednesday morning.

“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.”

Among those things: brain trauma. Concussions, like the one Stoll suffered after being hit by Raffi Torres in Game 1 of the Kings' series with the San Jose Sharks. He would miss the rest of that series, although he did return in time for the Western Conference Final.

Stoll, who was also concussed back in 2006-07 with the Oilers, has two more years left on his deal with the Kings.
