Penguins president Morehouse recovering from heart attack, minor procedure in San Jose

PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Penguins president David Morehouse is recovering from a heart attack in San Jose, Calif., where the team played its last game.

Penguins' vice-president of communications Tom McMillan says Morehouse became ill as the team was preparing to fly out of San Jose on Sunday, the morning after a 5-0 loss to the Sharks.

McMillan says Morehouse was still in an undisclosed hospital in San Jose on Monday and should return to Pittsburgh in a couple of days. McMillan says Morehouse had a "minor procedure" after the heart attack, and is expected to make a full recovery.

The Penguins hired the 48-year-old Morehouse in 2004 to help craft a financing deal for the US$325 million Consol Energy Center set to open next fall. He was promoted to president two years ago.
