Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester is back in St.
Louis after collapsing on the bench during a game in Anaheim last
week and released a statement Tuesday.

“Our family has felt the support of the entire National Hockey
League family and the city of St. Louis during this time,”
Bouwmeester said in the statement. “We have all been greatly
comforted by your genuine concern. On Sunday evening, I returned to
St. Louis and I am on the road to recovery. My wife and daughters
are forever grateful for everyone’s support and we will continue to
have a positive outlook for our future.”
