Fans of the St. Louis Blues and Vegas Golden Knights showed their support for Jay Bouwmeester during a Thursday night game.
The Blues defenseman collapsed during a game earlier in the week with a cardiac issue, and it’s one of the scariest moments we’ve ever seen in sports. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

This is a great gesture from the Golden Knights to have fans do this while hosting the Blues. Some things are just bigger than the scoreboard.
Luckily, Bouwmeester seems to be doing alright and was alert after the incident. Still, collapsing on the bench during a game is about the scariest thing that can happen.

The hockey world is an incredibly close-knit community. When one guy goes down, there are players all over the league who know him well.
The Knights having banners for Bouwmeester is an all-class move.

Let’s hope we get to eventually see him back on the ice with the Blues. It’s just a terribly scary situation, but I’m glad to see so much support pouring out.
