So is Bouwmeester still at the hospital in Anaheim or did they move him back to St. Louis?

He's still in Anaheim. They implanted an ICD in his heart. https://www.nhl.com/blues/news/bouwmees ... -315058118

Likely means his career is over.

I can't imagine anything them doing for him that would've potentially saved his career, now its just about trying to make sure he lives a long and healthy life after this.

Blues trade for Marco Scandella to replace jaybo for a 2nd/4th with Montreal picking up half the cap hit.

ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the team has acquired defenseman Marco Scandella from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2021.

In addition, the team has placed defenseman Jay Bouwmeester on long-term injured reserve and assigned defenseman Niko Mikkola to the team's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage.

Scandella, 29, has dressed in 51 games between the Canadiens (20) and Buffalo Sabres (31) this season, totaling 12 points (four goals, eight assists), a plus-10 rating and 16 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-3, 208-pound defenseman was originally drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the second round, (No. 55 overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Across 10 seasons, Scandella has appeared in 569 regular-season games and tallied 136 points (42 goals, 94 assists) and 227 penalty minutes. He has also played in 39 career postseason games, recording nine points (six goals, three assists) and six penalty minutes.

I don't know much about the guy, other than he seems like a defensively responsible LHSD.

Not sure we really needed one given Mikkola's development, but I know depth is important.

Important enough to send away a 2nd round pick? Yikes.
