Bouwmeester was playing in his 1,241st game this season and has been known for his strong skating and conditioning. With the Blues, he won his first Stanley Cup last year and an Olympic gold medal playing for Canada in 2014.
The Blues tweeted the game against the Anaheim Ducks will be made up at a later date.
The team is staying in Orange County until they know more about Bouwmeester’s condition instead of going on to Nevada as planned.
