The Tucson Roadrunners will retire the number of former captain Craig Cunningham, who will also appear next week in a documentary on TSN in Canada.

Cunningham, 27, collapsed on the ice prior to the Roadrunners’ game on Nov. 19 last year. Serving as the captain of the Coyotes’ AHL affiliate at the time, it was found that Cunningham’s heart had suddenly stopped working. The event cost him part of his leg, and nearly his life.

He played just more than 30 games at the NHL level, but his career has now shifted to pro scouting after he was hired into that role with the Coyotes organization late last season.

TSN will air a feature called “All Heart” on Wednesday.

Two days later, on Oct. 27, the Roadrunners will retire Cunningham’s No. 14, and fans will receive a Cunningham bobblehead as part of “Craig Cunningham Night” in Tucson.
