St. Louis Blues defenseman collapses on the bench

Something you never want to see;

During the first period of Tuesday’s game in Anaheim between the Ducks and Blues, veteran defenseman Jay Bouwmeester collapsed on the Blues bench.

In 2013, which player collected the most points for the Stars?
Alex Goligoski
Cody Eakin
Jamie Benn
Jaromir Jagr
Loui Eriksson
Ray Whitney




While sitting on the bench, it seems as though Bouwmeester passed out, falling off the bench and nearly hitting his head on the way down.



Play would come to a halt as both teams surrounded the St. Louis bench. Blues players physically picked up and moved the benches to allow medics staff to tend to the Stanley Cup winning defenseman.



Bouwmeester would be carried off the bench via stretcher and the game would be delayed, with both teams heading to the locker room.



Following the swift exit from the ice, Bouwmeester was stretchered to an ambulance and taken off to the hospital. He is said to have been acknowledging his surroundings with his eyes open.



As confirmed by the St. Louis Blues, the game has been postponed, and will be completed at a later date.



St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong released the following statement on the veteran defenseman’s condition;

"With 7:50 remaining in the first period of our game tonight, Jay Bouwmeester suffered 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."

Best wishes for Jay Bouwmeester following this terrifying incident.
