It was reported yesterday that Boston Bruins rookie defenseman Charlie McAvoy has been treated for an abnormal heart rhythm when he was treated at Massachusetts General Hospital.

He is expected to need about two weeks to recover.

It was revealed that the 20-year-old blue liner first reported heart palpitations to team doctors on Nov. 26. He was diagnosed with an abnormally fast heart rate. Team internist David Finn says it is not considered dangerous but is likely to recur.

On Tuesday, head coach Bruce Cassidy gave a reassuring update on McAvoy's condition. 

The young rookie has been released from the hospital, and is said to be feeling great. 

A 2016 first-round draft pick, McAvoy made his NHL debut during last year's playoffs. This season, he has five goals and 20 assists in 45 games.

We certainly hope his condition is under control and that he does indeed feel better.
