WDAY/ WDAZ TV - Will Borgen has gone through a lot in his hockey career. 

Borgen has bounced back from a brutal neck injury his junior year, where he took a skate to the neck that almost cut his carotid artery. 

Coming out of high school, the Moorhead native figured he would have to play a year of juniors before going on to play at St. Cloud State, but his college coaches had other plans.

Since he's got on campus, the Former Spud has taken every opportunity he's gotten and skated with it. 

In 2016, Borgen played in the World Junior hockey team and won bronze on the U.S. team. In just a few days Borgen will wear the red, white, and blue again, but in the Olympics. 

When he takes the ice in South Korea,  will become the first Moorhead native to play in the Olympics since Jason Blake and Matt Cullen did in 2006.
