The University of Minnesota men's hockey team is helping raise money for the Jack Jablonski Fund in two different ways at tomorrow night's U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game sponsored by Verizon against Notre Dame. A sellout crowd is expected at Mariucci Arena as the No. 3 Gophers face the fifth-ranked Irish.

Gopher student athletes and Minnesota representatives will be at the main entrances to Mariucci Arena collecting cash donations as fans enter the building. In addition, all proceeds from the postgame chuck-a-puck will be donated to the Jack Jablonski Fund.

Jablonski, a 16-year-old sophomore at Benilde-St. Margaret's, was severely injured last week when he was checked from behind in a local high school hockey game.

According to a post on Jablonski's CaringBridge.com site he had successful surgery on Wednesday to fuse his vertebrae, but, "Has limited mobility and no movement in his lower body. As we feared, he will not be able to walk or skate. This news is devastating to Jack and everyone who loves him. Our hope and dream is that he will be able to prove this prognosis wrong."

Fans are also able to send a donation to the Jack Jablonski Fund, P.O. Box 16387, St. Louis Park, MN 55416-2618. In addition, fans can also make a donation at any Wells Fargo Bank and should mention the "Jack Jablonski Fund" when doing so.

UPDATE: Donations for the Jack Jablonski Fund will also be collected at Sunday's Gopher men's basketball game vs. Purdue (5 p.m. at Williams Arena).
