Benilde-St. Margaret's JV hockey player Jack Jablonski, who was paralyzed after a hit during a holiday tournament earlier this year, has drawn outpourings of support from the Minnesota hockey community. Here's a few highlights.
*This year's Hockey Day Minnesota, scheduled for Saturday, has been dedicated to Jablonski with fundraising efforts across the state set up to help his family with medical expenses.
*Members of the Minnesota Wild have visited Jablonski in the hospital, and the team will wear decals on their helmets during its Hockey Day Minnesota home game against the Dallas Stars. (Here's a link to the decals; thanks to John Millea of the MSHSL for the link on Twitter.)
*Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick visited Jablonski recently, and players around the NHL have tweeted and sent cards and messages to show support. Singer Taylor Swift has also sent Jablonski a signed photograph.
