Procedure will be his second
The team said Thursday that Gustavsson met with a cardiac specialist after being taken to hospital Tuesday night with an elevated heart rate. Gustavsson experienced symptoms in the first period of Toronto's 3-0 victory over Montreal that night, and was pulled from the game at the first intermission.
The Swedish rookie, 25, will undergo the non-surgical procedure Friday to correct an abnormal heart rhythm. He also had the procedure during training camp.
