NEWARK - The Devils held a charity game Wednesday for Mikey Nichols, the Monroe High School hockey player still at a rehab center after breaking his neck during a game.
Nichols' father says Mike has virtually no feeling below his chest. Still, his spirits are high thanks largely to support like this.
"When my wife and I get down, we can look at the Facebook page, cards and letters, and the financial support from strangers and community," said Mikey's father, Steven Nichols.
Former Devils Captain Bruce Driver was glad to help out. "This one hits home a little different with Mike Nichols and the situation he went though and he does play high school here in New Jersey and we're pulling for him."
