  • Bouwmeester says he is not ready to make decision on hockey future

Jay Bouwmeester, the 36-year-old defenseman who collapsed with a cardiac episode for the reigning National Hockey League champion St. Louis Blues, was ruled out Wednesday for the remainder of the season.

The 6-foot-4, 206-pound defensemen glided to the Blues' bench, sat down and collapsed, suffering what general manager Doug Armstrong would describe later as a cardiac episode.

The veteran blueliner is now scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in July after playing this season on a one-year, $3.25 million contract. Armstrong said he will continue talks with the defenseman over the summer.

"The outreach and support people have shown has been pretty overwhelming", Bouwmeester said.

Being in a bubble while in the hospital was a good thing, he said, and he hasn't looked at the footage of what took place.

The 21-year-old Mete had four goals and 11 assists in 51 games this season.

The veteran of 17 National Hockey League seasons, who helped Canada capture Olympic gold in 2014 at Sochi, collapsed on the Blues bench during the first period of a game two weeks ago at Anaheim and was revived with a defibrillator as his stunned teammates watched before being taken to a nearby hospital.

Bouwmeester suffered a cardiac episode and collapsed on the bench during a game on February 11.

"Everything up to that point was normal", Bouwmeester said.

"Obviously there's decision I have to make but that will come later", he said according to Sportsnet's Ryan McKenna. "It was completely out of the blue".

Bouwmeester did have family present when the cardiac episode did take place as it was part of the Blues' father's trip.

Bouwmeester said he is feeling better and more normal since the episode. From doctors in the hospital to pretty much everyone I've talked to, that's the consensus.

Bouwmeester said he's been moved by the response he has received from people. He said doctors are still trying to "pin down" exactly what happened.

"There's been a lot going on", Bouwmeester said Wednesday. "But everything has been going pretty good lately". "I'm at the point now where I feel pretty good". A defibrillator must also be available, as well as a triage room and ambulances on call.

Bouwmeester, playing in his 18th season, helped St. Louis capture its first Stanley Cup in franchise history last season.

Bouwmeester, a first-round pick of the Florida Panthers, held one of the longest ironman streaks in National Hockey League history with 737 consecutive regular-season games played until a lower-body injury in 2014.

Selected by the Florida Panthers in the first round (No. 3) of the 2002 NHL Draft, Bouwmeester has 424 points (88 goals, 336 assists) in 1,240 regular-season games with the Blues, Flames and Panthers, and 13 assists in 75 playoff games.

The Blues have placed Bouwmeester on long-term injured reserve.
