The Penguins have been in contact with Bellerive and we can all hope that he recovers quickly. In a statement they also said:
"“The Penguins ask for your thoughts and prayers for the continued recovery of Bellerive and Lethbridge Hurricanes teammate Ryan Vandervlis, and former teammate Matt Alfaro. Their health is our first priority. The team will not have any further information until more details are available.”"
