LA Kings' Jarret Stoll, BF of Erin Andrews, suffers seizure in LA home

Erin Andrews is usually the reporter asking the questions on the sidelines of a game but, on Thursday, it was Andrews who became part of the story when her boyfriend, Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll, was rushed to the hospital after suffering a seizure in their Los Angeles home.

The couple, who have been dating for several months, had a scary Fourth of July moment when the NHL star suffered the seizure in his Hermosa Beach home early yesterday morning, reports the Los Angeles Times.

“Everything is okay. They’ve run some tests and they still had another one to run,” the team’s general manager, Dean Lombardi, said. “The bottom line is that he’s fine. Now the issue is what caused it.”

The 31-year-old NHL star, who was rushed to Little Company Mary Hospital in Torrance, suffered from a concussion when he took a hard hit to the head from San Jose Sharks’ winger Raffi Torres in game one of the Western Conference semifinal playoff series. The injury kept the Canadian-born hockey champ benched for the rest of that series, although he returned shortly after.

He admitted to the Times that he was “taking it slow” during the recovery of that concussion.

“I’ve done this before, earlier on in my career, so I know how it feels and what’s right and what’s not if I’m off or back to normal or not,” he said of the previous concussion he suffered from during the 2006-07 season while playing for the Edmonton Oilers. “So just day by day.”

Still, Lombardi said “there are a myriad of things that can cause” a seizure.

On the lighter side of things, Stoll said “things are good” in his relationship with Andrews.

“We actually went for a nice dinner,” he told E! News about his first date with the veteran sports correspondent after being set up by former NFL star and “Live with Kelly and Michael” TV host, Michael Strahan. “We spent the day out in Malibu, it was like the day before [Valentine’s Day] … had a great day out there and then had a nice dinner out here by the beach.”
