Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Hockey fans across the state of Minnesota, including those at Duluth Marshall, will be wearing white on Thursday night to show support for the injured Jack Jablonski.
Jablonski, a Benilde-St. Margaret's sophomore forward, is now paralyzed after being checked from behind in a game on December 30.
“We just played Benilde a couple of weeks ago and have a really good relationship with them," Hilltoppers senior captain Judd Peterson said. "We’re doing this to show Jack respect and that we care for him and support him.”
The school's student-led athletic council will also be holding a fundraiser in between periods of the team's Thursday night game against rival Hermantown.
The money will be donated to a fund aimed at helping the Jablonski family cope with medical costs.
Thursday night's game between the Hawks and Hilltoppers begins at 7:30 p.m. at Mars Lakeview Arena in Duluth.
