Thrashers Goale Ondrej Pavelec has been release from the hospital, however, there is still no explanation as to why he suddenly collapsed during the teams regular season opener last week.

He sustained a concussion from hitting his head on the ice, but all tests to determine what caused him to collapse came back normal.

The situation reminded many people of the incident with Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jiri Fischer a couple years ago. Fischer had been diagnosed with a heart abnormality before his collapse, but Pavelec has shown no signs of having any heart defect.
