Ducks donating portion of Wednesday night merchandise sales in honor of Bouwmeester

Nineteen percent of all sales at Wednesday night's Blues/Ducks game will be going to the hospital that helped saved Bouwmeester's life

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Ducks will re-start their postponed Feb. 11 game on Wednesday night at the Honda Center. And they've found a special way to honor the player whose medical emergency prompted the original game's postponement.

Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester suffered a 'cardiac episode' during the Feb. 11 game against the Ducks. Trainers and staff used a defibrillator to revive him, and he was taken to UC Irvine Hospital in Orange, California.

Bouwmeester has recovered from the ordeal and had Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) surgery at UC Irvine. Bouwmeester will be out for at least the rest of this NHL season.

Now, with the Blues back in Anaheim, the Ducks have thought of a special way to honor him.

The Ducks tweeted that 19 percent of all merchandise sales at Wednesday's game plus the charitable half of the 50/50 raffle will be donated to UC Irvine Hospital.
