This may be old news to all of you who live in the Detroit area, but I didn't see anyone mention this

 

It sounds like a fluke play that paralyzed a high school senior from CC.  Players from the NHL have reached out, and Mike Babcock has made multiple visits to see him.  He's pictured in the article with an autographed Zetterberg jersey lying on him.

 

 

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock, whose son once played on a line with Matt at Catholic Central, has made multiple visits. In typical Babcock fashion, he isn't looking back at what happened but instead looking forward to what's next for Sorisho.

"He still can have a significant impact on the community and be a significant leader," Babcock said. "Now, it's time for him to grab his life back."

While others nurture, Babcock is pushing.

"He's like the general," Matt's grandfather said. "'Have you done this? Have you done that?'"
