USHL: Chicago Steel Give Jack Jablonski Roster Spot

Jack Jablonski has been at Minnesota Wild games to raise awareness for his spinal-cord foundation. - Hannah Foslien

In yet another classy move by the Chicago Steel, the organization gave Jablonski a roster spot with the number 13

The Chicago Steel organization has given Jack Jablonski a roster spot for the 2013-14 USHL season. The former Benilde St. Margaret's High School player who was paralyzed on the ice was drafted by the team in the 2013 USHL Draft.

Doctors believe that Jablonski will never walk again, but Jablonski's motto on his personal twitter account shows his resolve. It reads "Living to prove the doctors wrong."

It is another classy move by the Chicago Steel. Not only is it a feel good story, but also hopefully it will continue to bring awareness to the need to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.
