MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The father of a Minnesota hockey player who was seriously hurt Friday night says her mood is up-and-down and she still has no feeling in her lower body.

Eighteen-year-old Jenna Privette of Lakeville, a senior at St. Croix Lutheran High School in West St. Paul, remains in satisfactory condition at Hennepin County Medical Center. Her father, Dan Privette, says there hasn’t been much change since Saturday, when she started feeling pain in her arms.

He says she was checked from behind into the boards in a game Friday night. When she arrived in the emergency room, he says, she still had a Number 13 painted on her cheek. She did it to honor Jack Jablonski, a Benilde-St. Margaret’s player who was paralyzed Dec. 30 when he was checked from behind.

    Why so little news on Jenna? The news is all about Jack. Let us not forget to include her and her family in our prayers.

      I am guessing because she has no fractures and no severed spinal cord. Just a thought.

      Hockey is a safe sport when the players are coached properly. By the time the refs get to making a call, the damage has already been done.
