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.

You can stay up-to-date with Jablonski's current road to recovery on his Caring Bridge web site.
