Yahoo Sports News reported that Benilde-St. Margaret's high schooler Jack Jablonski was not allowed to join his teammates in celebration on the ice after they won their state title Monday.
Jablonski was paralyzed by a blow from behind during a game this past winter. He was hospitalized after the blow, and had his halo removed today, according to http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/03/14/jack-jablonski-all-smiles-after-halo-removed/.
According to Yahoo Sports News, a few days before the Monday game Jablonski had been allowed on the ice to receive a first-place medal when his team won the sectional title. Jablonski's name wasn't on the team roster for the state game, said Executive Director Dave Stead, thus he was not technically eligible to accept the medal with the team.
According to http://www.mnhockeyhub.com/news_article/show/138578, Jablonski took the state trophy home and was told by Benilde-St. Margaret's coach Ken Pauly that he would also receive a medal soon.
