Blackhawks help raise money for injured hockey player

They may be opponents on the ice, but the Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild have come together to help an injured hockey player.

Matt Olson, a Minnesota native, suffered a severe spinal cord injury last month while playing hockey for the Chicago Cougars.

The teams and their broadcast partners have raised more than $177,000 to help pay for his care.
