Paralyzed High School Hockey Player Jack Jablonski Selected By Chicago Steel in USHL Draft
Chicago Steel noticed the draft, and made this statement:
"With their final pick in the 2013-2014 USHL draft, The Chicago Steel are extremely proud to announce that they have drafted forward Jack Jablonski from Minneapolis, Minnesota."
It's a great move by Chicago Steel paying tribute to a champion of life. While many people would have thrown in the towel, Jack continues to rehab and hold on to every glimmer of hope. Which brings up his progress. I took time to check out his caring bridge website and he's sporadically having feeling in his feet, and can nearly kneel on his own. Quite inspring, Jack. Keep it up!
He also talked with USA Today sports about being drafted.
