Doctors have cleared Rich Peverley to exercise, but the Dallas forward says he has a few more benchmarks to pass before he's deemed ready to handle the rigors of NHL play again.

"I'm not exactly sure what's going to happen, but I'm hoping to play and it's got to be under the right circumstances. So we'll wait and see and hopefully I can," Peverley said. "To actually clear me to play is a lot of steps down the road, but they did clear me [to exercise]. . . Now it's just slowly taking steps of getting the heart rate higher. My next step will probably be getting off medication that I'm on to control my heartbeat still. Once I'm off of that we'll see what happens in terms of how my heart reacts to no medication and see what happens when it's stressed." Peverley collapsed on the Stars' bench during a March 10 game and was brought back to life by team trainers and doctors.
