Jay Bouwmeester Won’t Play This Season With Long Term Decision Coming Later

from NHL.com,

Jay Bouwmeester is out the rest of the season for the St. Louis Blues.

The 36-year-old defenseman had a cardiac episode during a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Feb. 11. He collapsed before he was revived with a defibrillator with 7:50 remaining in the first period. The game was postponed and rescheduled for March 11 at Honda Center (10 p.m. ET). It will follow the same 60-minute format of all regular-season games (including overtime/shootout as necessary) and begin with the score tied 1-1, as it was when the game was postponed.

"Jay and I have spoken over the last week or so and we both understand that he won't participate this year in the regular season or playoffs for us," Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said Wednesday. "We talked about longer term things that may or may not happen and both feel that it's February. You don't have to make long term decisions at this point. He's going to take time and again back in with his family and get around the team and he'll address those things as the summer progresses."
