ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. (AP) A former Minnesota high school hockey player paralyzed during a game in 2011 says he has achieved a dream of working in the NHL.
Jack Jablonski tweeted Thursday that he has a job as a content coordinator with the Los Angeles Kings working in podcasting, radio and TV.
Jablonski recently graduated from the University of Southern California with a major in communications and interned with the Kings before he was hired full time.
“Thank u to all who have helped me," Jablonski tweeted.
Jablonski was a student at Benilde-St. Margaret's School in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, when he injured his spinal cord injury in a game on Dec. 30, 2011. He was hit from behind and sent head-first into the boards.
