Support Reese Ketler

As many of you may have already heard, Reese Ketler, a 19yr old St. Vital Vics Major Junior hockey player, went awkwardly into the corner boards following a clean check midway through the first period of a game against the Raiders Jr. Hockey Club at St. Vital Arena. 

Reese suffered severe injuries to his neck and upper back that required surgery to help stabilize four vertebral fractures in his spine. He sustained a spinal cord injury and is ultimately paralyzed from the chest down. Ketler is also dealing with paralysis in his hands. 

In the following article, you will find a link to a GoFundMe page that has been set up to help the family and Reese.
