MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Professional hockey players are showing their support for an Isanti teen severely injured during a hockey game last month.
Matt Olson played for the Totino-Grace Hockey team. While playing junior hockey with the Chicago Cougars in February, he fell into the boards, severely pinching his spinal cord. Olson is now unable to move anything below his shoulders.READ MORE: Tensions High In Twin Cities Amid Wright Protests, Upcoming Chauvin Trial Verdict
At their March 29th game, both the Minnesota Wild and the Chicago Blackhawks will wear special stickers on their helmets to show support for Olson.
The whole game will be dedicated to Olson and will aim to raise money for his recovery.
