BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State High School League is explaining why a paralyzed hockey player was not on the ice after his team won the Class 2A state boys championship.

Sophomore Jack Jablonski watched from a suite Saturday night as Benilde-St. Margaret’s beat Hill-Murray 5-1. Jablonski celebrated with his teammates in the locker room, but was not on the ice for the awards ceremony.

The league said Monday that Jablonski was not listed as a member of the official roster. But the league says its staff worked to make sure Jablonski “could be an important part of his school team before and following each game.”

Red Knights coach Ken Pauly says Jablonski will get a championship medal.

Jablonski was paralyzed Dec. 30 when he was hit into the boards during a game.
