MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Paralyzed high school hockey player Jack Jablonski is finally able to move his head.

On Wednesday, doctors removed the halo that was holding Jablonski’s head in place since his injury in December.

You can see his big smile in the above picture.

Jablonski will now begin rehab to strengthen his upper body and neck. The neck brace he now wears will also come off in the future.

      Great! I didn’t make the news when I had my halo removed. Please let this young man grieve and learn to live his new life. Enough with the every step of the way updates. The only people who want that information are his family and close friends.

    People of all ages – average citizens, athletes and scholars – could learn some valuable lessons from you. You and the Red Knights made all of Minnesota proud Saturday night!
