It was always Jack Jablonski’s dream to be in the NHL. That dream has come true, although he is not a member of a hockey team.
Jablonski was paralyzed several years ago after suffering a severe spinal cord injury during a hockey game in Minnesota. In January he became a member of the Los Angeles Kings. In a post on Twitter, Jablonski said he is joining the Kings as a content coordinator. His duties will include radio, television and working on podcasts.
Jablonski recently graduated from the University of Southern California with a major in communications. He held an internship with the Kings before being brought on full-time with the organization.
He was a junior at Benilde-St. Margaret’s when he was injured. He has not only been an advocate for people with spinal cord injuries, but he’s also been a beacon of hope for anyone living with paralysis. The Jack Jablonski Foundation has helped raise donations and awareness toward paralysis recovery.
