It was a truly frighting scene Tuesday night as Blues veteran defenseman Jay Bouwmeester collapsed on the bench during the 1st period.
Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong released the following statement. "With 7:50 remaining in the first period of our game tonight, Jay Bouwmeestersuffered a cardiac episode and collapsed on our bench after completing his shift. Thankfully, with the quick response of our medical trainers, Anaheim medical trainers and their team physicians, they were able to stabilize Jay. He was alert and moving all of his extremities as he was transported to UC Irvine Medical Center. Currently, Jay is conscious and alert as he undergoes further testing by Anaheim's physicians. We will update Jay's condition on Wednesday morning."
