Jay Bouwmeester suffered cardiac arrest on the bench.

Scary to watch.

Word down here is he is stable and doing well. Very scary indeed.

He had to be revived by the defibrillator. In all honesty, he is lucky it happened at a game. If it happens while he is at home he very well may have died. Great work by everyone involved to get him the care he needed immediately

Kind of a freaky thing for it to happen too on this road trip as this is the annual dad's trip where the players' fathers come along on the trip with them.

Bouwmeester has undergone a procedure to put in an implantable cardioverter-defibrilator and his status will be updated next week.

At this point, the plan is for him to stay in the hospital in Anaheim and then eventually be allowed to leave and head back to St. Louis.
