Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley returned to practice on Tuesday after following a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.

Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley returned to practice on Tuesday after sitting out the previous week due to an irregular heartbeat. 

According to Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official website, Peverley wore a red "no contact" jersey at practice. The Stars center said it feels good to be back and that he's not worried about his situation. 

"It's good to be not by myself and with the guys and kind of getting into a rhythm and a pace.

"I am not really worried about it. I am on medication to help me. Even if it does come back, it is not a career-threatening thing. I could play through it and there are other things they could do to help me." 

Peverley, who was acquired from the Boston Bruins in the trade for Tyler Seguin, consulted a specialist in Cleveland who recommended he take blood thinners. He is expecting a full recovery and should be ready to go for the regular season in October.   

Stars GM Jim Nill broke the news of Peverley's irregular heartbeat on September 13, saying he will miss the next three weeks and can't be on the receiving end of any form of contact.  

The issue was first detected on Peverley's EKG during his physical. Back then, he underwent a procedure "which entailed shocking the heart and getting it back into rhythm," per the Dallas Morning News' Mike Heika.  

Nill said the 31-year-old Peverley is an important part of the Stars because of his versatility. 

"I think he's a big part of our team. He's very versatile. You can play him up with good players, you can play him in a second-, third-line role. He's very good on faceoff, you can play him on the wing. He's won Stanley Cups, been in playoffs, he's been to finals, and that's the kind of experience you can't have enough of." 

Peverley enters his eighth NHL season after previously playing for the Nashville Predators, the then-Atlanta Thrashers and the Bruins. He has 77 goals and 134 assists for 211 points in his pro career.
