Hamilton Bulldogs head coach Dave Matsos collapses, taken to hospital


BARRIE, ONTARIO, Canada — Hamilton Bulldogs head coach Dave Matsos was taken to the hospital after collapsing on his team's bench Saturday night in an Ontario Hockey League matchup against the Barrie Colts.

In the final seconds of the game Matsos collapsed on the bench and was immediately attended to by on-site paramedics.

He was alert and responsive when transported to a local hospital for what the league said were "precautionary measures."

The 44-year-old, who is behind the Bulldogs' bench for a second year after serving as assistant coach in 2017-18, is in his 10th season coaching in the OHL after spending time with the Windsor Spitfires and Sudbury Wolves.

Hamilton was leading 4-2 when the game was called and awarded the victory.
