Blackhawks, Capitals, Lightning send signed jerseys to Denna Laing

BY foxsports • January 29, 2016

The Chicago Blackhawks were the latest NHL team to send their well wishes to injured women's hockey player Denna Laing.

The Stanley Cup champions recently gifted a signed hockey jersey to Laing, who is recovering from a severe spinal cord injury suffered at the Women's Winter Classic.

The Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning also have reached out to Laing in this manner while the long-time rivals Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens are auctioning off game-worn and autographed jerseys from their contest on Jan. 19.

The 24-year-old Laing has limited movement in her arms and no sensation below her chest after fracturing and shattering multiple vertebrae when she fell head-first into the boards. 

You can contribute to Laing's medical fund here.
