Mikey Nichols (Monroe, NJ Hockey) Receives $25,000 Donation from the NJ Devils

17-year-old Mikey Nichols is a Monroe Township (NJ) senior who suffered a severe injury to his C5 vertebra during a high school varsity game on Jan. 4, 2014. Last night New Jersey Devils CEO Scott O’Neil and President Hugh Weber presented the family of Nichols with a $25,000 donation (above). This morning, Mikey's parents said thank you.

Good morning. I would first like to start by expressing our families gratitude to the New Jersey Devils organization for a fantastic evening last night. They showed just how wonderful the hockey community is, by not only inviting our family, friends, and Mike's teammates to enjoy a Devils game in a suite, but topped that off by making a 25,000 dollar donation to Mike. Thank you so much New Jersey Devils, the evening was unbelievable. We are humbled by the organizations generosity and support for Mike from day one. Mike was moved back to rehab at Kessler yesterday afternoon. He is so happy to be out of the hospital, and anxious to get back to being able to focus on his recovery. Mike is feeling well and reenergized. Please keep your thoughts and prayers coming Mike's way.

Thank You
Chris and Steve

Immediately after, Steve went on the Boomer & Carton show. We had enough Comcast HSI time between outages in order to up that for you.

The Monroe Falcons Hockey Team website, MikeyStrong23, and the Facebook page 'Pray for Mikey 23' are places you can go to learn more about Mike's recovery.
