DETROIT, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Detroit defenseman Jiri Fischer made a return trip to the hospital after experiencing an abnormal cardiac rhythm while resting at home on Monday.

Fischer, who suffered a seizure Nov. 21 during Detroit's game against Nashville, was readmitted to the Detroit Medical Center Monday evening for observation. He was discharged Wednesday, but is expected to travel to Michigan Medical Center for further testing.

The 25-year-old Czech collapsed at the end of the bench during the first period of the game against the Predators on Nov. 21, and was administered CPR by team physician Dr. Tony Colucci. Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock said Fischer's heart had actually stopped and he had no pulse before they hooked him to the auto defibrillator and shocked him.

Fischer was originally discharged from the hospital after just two days.
