Jack Jablonski joins the Los Angeles Kings

Josh Vold   ·   23 janvier 2020
Jack Jablonski announced on Twitter Thursday night that he is joining the Los Angeles Kings as a content coordinator. His duties will include radio, television, and working on pod casts.

Jablonski attended the University of Southern California, and recently graduated with a communications degree. He spent the last four seasons as an intern with the Kings before being brought on full-time on Thursday.

Who was selected in the first round no.6 of 2014 by the canucks?
Alexander Edler
Ben Hutton
Bo Horvat
Brandon Sutter
Elias Pettersson
Jake Virtanen


If you're not familiar with Jablonki's story, he grew up in Minnesota, and like every young hockey player from that area, he had dreams of playing in the NHL one day. He went on to play high school hockey Benilde — St. Margaret's high school hockey team out St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Unfortunately, this is where his hockey career came to a tragic end.

During a game against Wayzata on Dec. 30, 2011, as Jablonski was pursuing a loose puck along the boards, he was hit from behind by one of the Wayzata players. He crashed into the boards head first, and as he was being looked over by medical staff, Jablonski told them that he couldn't feel anything, he eventually regained feeling in his shoulders and right arm after being placed in traction and a halo neck brace.

After further examination it was determined that Jack had suffered two fractured vertebrae, and his spinal cord was severed at the C5 level. The injury left him as a quadriplegic.

Over the course of eight years, Jablonski has put in a lot of work with doctors and specialists trying to make some progress with his injury, and on July 9, 2018 he posted a video to his Twitter account of him moving his toes all on his own. He's also been able to activate other muscles in his lower body, including his glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, and lower abdominal muscles.



In 2012, Jablonski started the BEL13VE in Miracles Foundation, which is not-for-profit organization that helps other individuals dealing with spinal injuries gain access to the same advanced therapies that Jack had.

We here at TradeRumours with Jack the best of luck with his new job with the Kings.
