It's hard to think that anyone would ever be able to forget Jack Jablonski. Jablonski, the Benidle-St. Margaret's (MN) player who was paralyzed from the chest down by a check playing high school hockey in December 2011, has told his story numerous times. Jablonski's Be13ve in Miracles Foundation has awarded $100,000 in research grants and scholarships.
Now his number will hang from the numbers.
Benilde-St. Margaret's honored the 19 year-old Saturday by retiring Jablonski's #13 before the team's game against Hill-Murray in St. Louis Park, MN.

Jablonski, serving as a BSM assistant, joins former Benilde and Boston College players Andrew Alberts and Joe Schuman as players who have had their number retired by the Red Knights.
