WEST ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The hockey community is gathering around yet another high school player who was injured on the ice.

Jenna Privette, a senior at St. Croix Lutheran High School, was checked from behind during a game Friday according to her father Dan Privette. She told those on the ice with her she had no feeling in her arms or legs.

But there is good news. Her father said she has some movement in her arms and is in some pain which means she may not be paralyzed.

Her classmates are now planning a "Blue Day" to honor the hockey player. Students will wear blue, which are the colors of her hockey team, to honor Privette.

They also plan to sell bracelets to help the family with medical bills, according to Gene Pfiefer, president of St. Croix Lutheran.
