Flames' TJ Brodie out of hospital after collapsing during practice

Calgary Flames defenceman TJ Brodie has been released from hospital after collapsing during a team practice.

The 29-year-old fell to the ice and was convulsing during a skate on Thursday and was taken off the ice on a stretcher.

Later Thursday, the Flames released an update to Brodie's condition.

"Following tests conducted at a local hospital, TJ has been discharged and is doing well in recovery at home with his family."

Shortly after the incident, the team said in a statement that Brodie was "alert and responsive" and had been transported to a local hospital. 

The team added that general manager Brad Treviling would give another update Friday morning from the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Brodie is in his ninth season with the Flames. The native of Chatham, Ont., has eight assists in 21 games this season.
