A scary scene has taken place in Anaheim tonight where the Ducks were hosting the defending Stanley Cup champions St. Louis Blues.
During the first period of the contest, defenseman Jay Bouwmeester collapsed at the team bench. A few of his teammates, including captain Alex Pietrangelo noticed his fall and realized something was terribly wrong.
They called over the trainers to get help to Bouwmeester.
This is a disrupting scene, check it out:
Both the Blues and Ducks have agreed to postpone tonight’s game to a later date seeing what happened to Bouwmeester.
The blue liner has been rushed to a local hospital to get him the necessary treatment he needs at this time. His eyes were reportedly open and he acknowledged that he was getting into an ambulance.
St. Louis’ Darren Pang reported a defibrillator was “close by” and trainers and doctors were on the case immediately.
We send him our thoughts and prayers.
