What a classy move by the Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League to draft Jack Jablonski (“USHL team is inspired to draft Jablonski,” May 9). It’s one of the most inspiring things I’ve seen in a long time. Being from Minnesota, I’m usually loyal only to local teams, but now I’m also a Steel fan. The USHL is the country’s top junior league for amateur hockey players. The Steel had better keep that spot open for Jack — you never know just what he’s capable of. Great story.
