Blues issue health update on Jay Bouwmeester after scary collapse on bench

Jay Bouwmeester

A defibrillator was used on the longtime defenseman, and he left the arena conscious and on a stretcher.

Pietrangelo also said he personally went to see Jay and his father, Dan, who was on the team for the "dads trip", in the hospital Tuesday night and was able to connect the rest of the team with him as well.

Alex Pietrangelo, the Blues captain, also fielded a few questions. He was in good spirits with us.

According to, an ICD procedure involves docs placing a battery-powered device underneath the skin in the hopes that it will help monitor irregularities in the heart and avoid sudden cardiac episodes down the line. When pressed by a reporter to clarify, he answered, "Typical Jay is very good Jay". We're a close group. "And certainly we're lucky to have each other any time you're going through something like this". "A lot of the Ducks players, (Ryan) Getzlaf, they reached out right away". The contest will be a full game but the score will start at 1-1, as it was when the incident happened. The 36-year-old has nine points (one goals, eight assists) in 56 games this season, and 424 points (88 goals, 336 assists) for the Blues, Florida Panthers and Calgary Flames since the Panthers selected him with the No. 3 pick in the 2002 NHL Draft. "Our worst conditioned athlete is a great athlete, and Jay's at the top of his profession", Armstrong offered.

Bouwmeester is among only 29 players who has completed the career hockey hat trick of winning the Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal (with Canada in 2014 at Sochi) and a world championship (in 2003 and 2004). That number is still good enough for ninth on the all-time list.
