An incredibly scary moment occurred Tuesday night in a game between the St. Louis Blues and the Anaheim Ducks. The game was proceeding as normal when Blues veteran Jay Bouwmeester suddenly collapsed on the bench. The game was ultimately postponed after the medical emergency.

The video shows other Blues players immediately calling for help as Bouwmeester collapsed while sitting down. The good news is that early reports indicate he's awake on his way to the hospital.

The right call was made to postpone the game after this horrific incident. There's no need to continue on after just about everyone was visibly shaken up (at least on the Blues' side based on the video) in wake of what had happened.

Our thoughts are certainly with Bouwmeester, his loved ones, and his teammates as this emergency gets sorted out. Stay tuned for updates.
