After missing nearly two full years with post-concussion symptoms, Johns returned in January 2020 and played 17 games down the stretch for the Stars. He even made it through three round-robin games with Dallas in the bubble, but it appears as those may potentially be the final matches of his career.

It shouldn’t come as any shock that Jay Bouwmeester has retired from the NHL. The veteran defenseman announced as much through Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, explaining that he “knew [he] was done essentially when it happened, to be quite honest.” "It" in this case refers to the cardiac episode that Bouwmeester experienced in February of last year, collapsing on the bench and requiring transport to a nearby hospital.

St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester has been ruled out from returning to play in the regular season or in the playoffs. Bouwmeester is an unrestricted free agent after this season. He signed a one-year deal for .25 million for this season. In his 17 - year NHL career , Bouwmeester has played

Bouwmeester signed a one-year, .25 million contract with the Blues in April. He joined the franchise during the 2012-13 season and was part of their Stanley Cup winning run last season. The 17 - year veteran began his NHL career in 2002 with the Florida Panthers. He also played for the Calgary

It’s hard to explain just how beloved the 37-year-old Bouwmeester is around the NHL, not only by teammates for his personality and demeanor, but by coaching staffs and front offices for his unassuming rock-solid play. The smooth-skating defenseman played in 1,240 NHL games during a 17-year career, but it was rare for him to really dominate the highlight packages.

Bouwmeester was playing more than 21 minutes a night even at the very end of his career, still calmly diffusing offensive chances with his floating stride.

Even though his career was cut short, Bouwmeester still cracked the top-100 for games played in the history of the NHL, currently tied with Patrik Elias and Eric Staal for 96th overall. He managed to raise the Stanley Cup for the first time in 2019, 17 years after he was drafted third overall by the Panthers.

Perhaps most importantly, Bouwmeester told LeBrun that though it hasn’t been “totally smooth sailing” since his incident, he’s staying active and is “feeling OK.”
