Paralyzed hockey player lands job with Kings

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. -- A former Minnesota high school hockey player paralyzed during a game in 2011 has been hired by an NHL team.

Jack Jablonski tweeted Thursday that he has a job as a content coordinator with the Los Angeles Kings working in podcasting, radio and TV.

Jablonski recently graduated from USC with a major in communications and interned with the Kings before he was hired full time.

He was a student at Benilde-St. Margaret's School in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, when he injured his spinal cord in a game on Dec. 30, 2011. He was hit from behind and sent headfirst into the boards.
