Perhaps this hockey season more than ever, we have learned that seconds can change a person’s journey in life, for good or bad. When a player is injured, either on or off the ice, it changes everything – for the individual, for the family and in many cases, for an entire community. In Minnesota, when tragedy hits the hockey community, teams statewide rally together in support of one of their own. After an accident left Chanhassen native Jake Anderson paralyzed, hockey players from around Minnesota have taken the pledge to be Jandy Strong.
