Rick Jeanneret 'resting and doing well' after disappearing from Sabres broadcast



Buffalo Sabres broadcaster Rick Jeanneret, who was removed from the KeyBank Center press box on a stretcher during the third period of the team's game Saturday night, was "resting and doing well" at Buffalo General Medical Center, the team said in a statement Sunday morning.


"On behalf of Rick and his family, we'd like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers," the statement said. "Rick looks forward to being back in the booth after the break."


Two sources said Jeanneret, 76, was having his pacemaker data analyzed after he began feeling light-headed on the air and stopped talking during the broadcast of the game against the Anaheim Ducks. Jeanneret had the device implanted in 2014.
