from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

None of the current Wings players were with the organization when former defenseman Jiri Fischer suffered a cardiac arrest during a Nov. 21, 2005, against the Nashville Predators. But forward David Perron was on the bench when Jay Bouwmeester, then a teammate with the St. Louis Blues, went into cardiac arrest Feb. 11, 2020, during a game at the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center. Bouwmeester collapsed on the bench during a television timeout of a tied game.
"I remember clearing the bench and most of us were on the ice, just kind of white as ghosts and light-headed," Perron said. "You are really nervous for your buddy, you’re really concerned."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
