An Ottawa firefighter said he's looking forward to having a beer with the opposing player whose life he helped save during a game of hockey Friday night.

Ottawa paramedics said a 61-year-old man was playing hockey at the Kanata Recreation Complex when he collapsed around 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Off-duty firefighter Pat Aubry skated over, felt he had no pulse and immediately asked for someone to call 911 and get the public access defibrillator, according to Ottawa Fire Services.

"I was assessing him and as I was assessing him his eyes rolled back and he went purple, so I started CPR," said firefighter Pat Aubry.

CPR and one shock from the defibrillator were delivered, and paramedics said the man's pulse was back when they arrived.

"We set it up on him and the machine did what it was supposed to do," Aubry said.

He was taken to hospital conscious and is in stable condition.
