Hockey Day Minnesota Raises $134K for Jablonski

Minnetonka, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Hockey Day Minnesota was an event this year dedicated to paralyzed player Jack Jablonski, and an all-day telethon and auction raised more than $134,000 for him and his family.

The Minnesota Wild, FOX Sports North, and Wells Fargo announced Tuesday the amount raised by the one-day event, all of which will be donated to the Jack Jablonski Trust Fund.

Jablonski was paralyzed December 30 when he was checked from behind into the boards during a junior varsity hockey game for Benilde-St. Margaret's.

The 16-year-old was transferred on Monday to the Sister Kenny Rehablitation Institue to begin physical therapy for his injuries.
