Minneapolis Youth Hockey has retired No. 13 in honor of Jack Jablonski, the Benilde-St. Margaret's hockey player that was paralyzed during a game in 2012.

The organization retired Jablonski's number at a special NHL alumni game on Saturday, according to WCCO. Before playing for Benilde, Jablonski played for Minneapolis Park Youth Hockey, according to the Star Tribune.

The alumni game, which featured Reed Larson, Joe Dziedzic, Tom Chorske, among other players, was part of the program's 100 years of hockey celebration, according to the program's website.

It was the first number ever retired by the program, WCCO says.

This comes just a few days after Jablonski netted ESPN anchor Michelle Beadle as his prom date.
