Benilde-St Margaret’s High School
Jack Jablonski, the high school hockey player who was injured during a game three years ago, says he reached another milestone since that hit on the ice left him paralyzed.
Since being paralyzed during a high school hockey game three years ago, Jack Jablonski has had many highs and lows. Saturday night was most definitely a high. Saturday was prom night at Benilde-St. Margaret’s, and Jablonski’s date is one of the co-hosts of SportsNation on ESPN2, Michelle Beadle.
As Benilde-St. Margaret’s celebrated its sectional championship win over Wayzata on Friday night, you couldn’t help but feel like the Red Knights were still celebrating a win that had come two nights earlier.
It’s been almost 11 months since the injury that paralyzed Jack Jablonski. In that time, he has made remarkable progress physically, he has rejoined his classmates in school and he and his family have been able to move back into their home after a renovation to accommodate his disability.
A major milestone for Jack Jablonski — the paralyzed high school hockey player will be leaving Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute.
Ken Pauly is the boys’ hockey coach at Benilde-St Margaret’s high school. Now, Pauly is helping his players deal with tragedy.
