ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester remains hospitalized and is undergoing tests after suffering a cardiac episode and collapsing on the bench during a game in Anaheim.

General manager Doug Armstrong says the 36-year old defenseman was unresponsive and a defibrillator was used Tuesday night during the Blues/Ducks game Tuesday Night. He says Bouwmeester regained consciousness immediately before being taken to an Anaheim hospital.

The team stayed overnight in Southern California after the game was postponed before taking a chartered flight to Las Vegas, where they will play the Golden Knights on Thursday.
