Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester suffered a cardiac incident earlier in the week in a game against Anaheim which was ultimately postponed. After undergoing some testing, the team announced that he has undergone a successful Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) procedure. The procedure is done to restore the heart’s normal rhythm.

Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was involved in a medical emergency that postponed the game, and underwent successful surgery.

Presently, the 36-year-old remains in Anaheim but once he is cleared to be released, he is expected to fly back to St. Louis. The team is expected to provide an update on his status at some point next week but clearly, there is no timetable for his return with the priority at the moment simply being to get healthy again.

Bouwmeester is currently on a one-year, $3.25M contract (plus an additional $250K in bonuses, half of which have been met). With his short-term playing future certainly in question, he seems like a strong candidate to be placed on LTIR which could have St. Louis in the market for extra defensive depth between now and the February 24th trade deadline.

He will be the Jaguars’ quarterbacks coach, the team announced on Wednesday. It’s not where McAdoo was a couple years ago, or even right before the Giants promoted him to be head coach, but it’s a start.
