ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The New England Sports Village will be renaming one of the hockey rinks at its facility after AJ Quetta, a Bishop Feehan hockey player who suffered a spinal injury during a game nearly a year ago.

The premiere rink at the New England Sports Village will now be known as the "AJ Quetta Rink". The rink will be dedicated to Quetta during a ceremony before Bishop Feehan's game against Archbishop Williams on Dec. 18.

Quetta suffered the spinal injury when he crashed into the boards during a game earlier this year that left him paralyzed from the chest down. After doing rehab in Atlanta for three months, he returned home and graduated from Bishop Feehan.

In November, the Bishop Feehan Boys Hockey team announced Quetta was being hired as an assistant coach. As a part of his job, Quetta will work with the forwards on the team, assist with breaking down practice and game film, and help build the program's brand.

"He is a tremendous individual and his presence in the rink will be a driving force for our boys in their quest for the MIAA Division I state title," the team said in a Facebook post.

The ceremony will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 18 at the New England Sports Village.
