NHL Stars Join Benefit for Jablonski, Other Injured Players
Nearly seven months after being paralyzed during a hockey game, Jack Jablonski was out playing hockey on the same rink Thursday.
He was in his wheelchair, but still out on the ice with his friends, former teammates, and NHL great Jeremy Roenick.
Roenick was in town for a fundraiser to benefit Jablonski's recovery, as well as a number of scholarships that will help others pay for similar treatment.
More than 800 people were expected to attend the fundraiser, held at the Xcel Energy center in St. Paul. The family would not say how much they hope to raise with the fundraiser, but the type of treatment they were raising money for costs $64,000 each year.
