Bouwmeester produced an assist, three hits and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Bruins in Game 7. Bouwmeester supplied seven helpers and a plus-9 rating in 26 games during the postseason. The 35-year-old didn't feature in the playoffs in his first 10 NHL seasons but is now part of a Stanley Cup-winning team in his 16th campaign.
Bouwmeester notched an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Bouwmeester was the only Blues skater outside of the top line to register a point. The 35-year-old defenseman has six assists in 20 games in the postseason, but hadn't made his way onto the scoresheet in his previous 10 appearances.
Bouwmeester notched two assists during Monday's 4-3 win over the Stars in Game 3 of their Western Conference second-round series. He recorded the primary helper on each of the Blues' two third-period goals, including Patrick Maroon's game-winner with 98 seconds left on the clock. Bouwmeester now has five points, all assists, in nine games so far this postseason.
Bouwmeester had two assists, three hits and two shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Jets for Game 2 of their first-round series. The 35-year-old is not a noted point producer at this stage of his career, with the blueliner recording just 17 points in 78 regular-season games this season. He also only had six assists in his previous 50 playoff contests. Bouwmeester's unexpected burst of offense likely won't continue, but with four hits and blocked shots apiece, he may have a little fantasy value during the postseason.
Bouwmeester signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract extension with the Blues on Monday. Bouwmeester has been a mainstay on the St. Louis blue line, skating an average of 20 minutes per game each of the past six seasons. He also produced his best offensive output in the past three campaigns, accumulating 17 points in 78 games. Bouwmeester will continue to add toughness for the Blues, especially in the playoffs, after racking up 61 hits and 127 blocks this season.
