On November 18, 2016 Mick Deaver, from Columbia, MO who played in St. Louis, love for playing hockey came to a crashing end. While playing for his Junior team the Boston Bandits Mick gained the puck in his own end, he began skating up ice when he suddenly lost his balance and collided with a player from the other team. It was a collision that has happened thousands of times but this one was the one in a million that changed Mick, his family and all that know him forever. The resulting collision left Mick with a burst fracture of the C5 vertebrae
and a quadriplegic. Mick and his father remained in New Jersey were Mick began his long road of recovery and adjusting to a new way of life.
