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.

Blues have acquired defenseman Marco Scandella from the Canadiens for a 2020 2nd round pick and a conditional 2021 4th round pick.

Blues basically had to make this move after the recent events with Bouwmeester. While team was likely going to look for help with forwards originally, losing Bouwmeester basically forced their hand. A lot of what they decide to do between now and Monday at 3:00 PM ET will also depend on how Tarasenko is tracking in his recovery.

Blues make no additional moves at the deadline which was to be expected. Tarasenko is skating and will probably be back in another month.

They seemed to have turned a corner lately. Let’s hope that continues into playoffs

Blues' AHL affiliate next season will be in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Springfield Thunderbirds have been the Florida Panthers' AHL affiliate since the 2016-17 season.

So much for proximity.

Can't really do much about it, short of them moving a team to St. Louis and having them play at Chaiffetz Arena.

And they are far from the only one. The Lightning's and Canucks' AHL affliiates' are both in New York state, one in Syracuse and the other in Utica. The Predators' affiliate is in Milwaukee. And Edmonton and Calgary both have AHL teams in California.

John Kelly has tested positive for Coronavirus though he said he has been self-quarantining since he initially started feeling sick and is now feeling better.
