MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Jack Jablonski, the 16-year-old high school hockey player who was paralyzed during a game in 2012, received a major honor Saturday. Minneapolis Youth Hockey retired Jablonski’s jersey number, 13.

In 2012, a check from behind left Jablonski paralyzed. Since then he’s made remarkable progress.

Minneapolis Youth Hockey retired the number at a special NHL Alumni game Saturday.

It was part of the league’s ’100 Years of Hockey’ celebration.

It’s the first number to be retired by the program.

Earlier this week, Jablonski also asked ESPN reporter Michelle Beadle to prom and she said yes.

The big dance is in April.
