MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Jenna Privette, a hockey player from St. Croix Lutheran, is fighting every day to get her life back to normal as much as she can.
Just a week after Jack Jablonski suffered a paralyzing hit into the boards, Privette suffered an injury during a game she was playing with Minnehaha Academy against the St. Paul Blades.
She has been in the hospital ever since and still has no feeling in her legs. Doctors are calling her injury a spinal concussion. It won’t happen quickly, but her doctors said they expect her to make a full recovery.
Privette, a senior at St. Croix Lutheran, said its her goal to walk at her school’s graduation ceremony. She talked about her injury Thursday for the first time since it happened. WCCO-TV was there, watch the video above for the whole story.
