Wild Dedicate Hockey Day Minnesota To Jack Jablonski
Injured high school hockey players Jenna Privette and Jack Jablonski have both been on our minds over the last few weeks, and many of us have been showing support with Facebook Profile picture changes or wearing hockey apparel. But the Minnesota Wild have decided to take it a step further – The Wild have decided to bring the meaning of next week’s Hockey Day Minnesota (Jan 21) to an entirely new level for the Jablonski family.
A day after both Wild and San Jose Shark players visited Jack in the hospital they have decided to dedicate the entire day of hockey to Jack’s Family. In addition to an online auction and Xcel personnel on hand to take donations, there will be an all day telethon that will raise funds to help out the Jablonskis.
Meanwhile a statewide movement had supporters of Jenna Privette wearing blue today to bring awareness her way- Both remain hospitalized and recovering from their injuries. Jenna Privette's family says she still can't move her legs and is fighting an infection. But the 18-year-old St. Croix Lutheran High School senior who was injured in a hockey game last week is beginning physical therapy.
Last night at the game between the Sharks and Wild, Jack's younger brother Max carried the flag out to the ice to a cacophonous roar of applause.
