As most of you know, 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:

Both the Blues and Ducks agreed to postpone the game to a later date seeing what happened to Bouwmeester. The Blues were expected to fly out to Vegas last night, but stayed in Orange County after the incident. 

The veteran player is reportedly stable, conscious, and alert at the hospital and reporter John Shannon mentioned on Wednesday that Bou texted friends from his hospital bed, saying he is doing well. 

Now speculation will rise on whether he should hang up the skates and call it a career.
