St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was hospitalized after suffering a cardiac episode and collapsing on the bench during the first period of the game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
As soon as Bouwmeester fell to the floor, a few of his teammates, including captain Alex Pietrangelo and Vince Dunn, 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:
Insiders and pundits expected the Blues to provide further update on Bouwmeester’s condition on Wednesday morning.
The team, who was expected to fly out of Anaheim last night en route to Vegas, delayed its departure and will arrive later today in Sin City.
An update is expected to be provided this afternoon in Las Vegas at the Waldorf Astoria hotel.
Fans are worried that the delay in further update could mean that Bouwmeester isn’t doing well, however, he is believed to be stable at the hospital.
Now speculation will rise on whether he should hang up the skates and call it a career.
