NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An NYPD detective who was nearly killed on the job in Brooklyn received a special honor Saturday night.

Det. Dalsh Veve was an honorary flag captain before the Islanders game.

He was severely injured in 2017 after he was dragged for several blocks by a teenager driving a stolen car in East Flatbush.

Veve suffered injuries that left him paralyzed.
