Recommended Posts

RCMP are on the scene of a motor vehicle collision that involved a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey Leauge team bus and have confirmed there have been fatalities.

They say multiple emergency personnel are continuing rescue efforts after a semi-trailer unit collided with a passenger bus carrying members of the Humboldt Broncos team who were on their way to play the Nipawin Hawks in a playoff game, which has now been cancelled.

Sad day for the hockey community.

Everyone hug your family a little tighter tonight as tomorrow is not guaranteed.

On the SJHL page. They've blocked access to the team's roster, apparently.

If you check Eliteprospects.com you can find the team roster.

And he was detained but later released. The bus had the right-of-way in the intersection and would have been stopping for a railroad crossing in another 500 feet. The truck had a well-lit stop sign to obey before entering the intersection about 2 hours before the sun set.

Via Mark Atnips Facebook page: 

Hockey is a small world.  I have said many time that there are no more than three degrees of separation between any two persons who have played hockey.  

Emery Olauson (and without a doubt, many other current and former SPHL'ers)  lost a friend in the Humboldt crash last night.  

If you ever met Emery, you met a man whose friend coached every single young man killed in last night's accident.

That's the way the hockey world works.  

Think about that before you shout something terrible about a player at a hockey game. 

Go Ice Bears
Go Humboldt Broncos

Not sure if this was the "15" player that they mention passed or if it makes 16 now.

 

Humboldt Broncos defenceman Logan Boulet has been taken off life support. 

His organs will be donated and he will help save the lives of six others.

This was on Facebook. 

 

Humboldt Broncos defenceman Ryan Straschnitzki has underwent a successful 7-hour surgery on his broken back but is paralyzed from the chest down and will likely never walk again.

Straschnitzki is not letting this deter him from continuing to chase his hockey dream however and he plans to take up sledge hockey. 

“He keeps wanting to try and move his legs, of course, because he wants to go back skating,” his father, Tom, told the Calgary Herald. “He just looked at me and his mother and he goes, ‘well, I’m gonna get onto the Olympic sledge hockey team.’

“He’s an amazing kid, that boy.”

Facebook again.....

 

Saskatchewan's Ministry of Justice says they misidentified one of the bodies in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. 

Defence man Xavier Labelle, previously thought deceased, is alive. 

Goaltender Parker Tobin, previously identified as alive, is unfortunately among the 15 dead. 

Saskatchewan’s Office of the Chief Coroner has apologized for the mix up.

Just found out that the entire Ice Bears team donated some or all of their game checks from Saturday (or more) to the bus crash victims.

Way to go, Ice Bears! clapping-happy-smiley-emoticon.gif

According to a breaking news report from CTV news, the Saskatchewan Health Authority has announced the passing of a young woman named Dayna Brons. Dayna was the Athletic Therapist for the Humboldt Broncos and as a result of her role on the team she was also on the bus when they were t-boned by a semi truck near Armley, Saskatchewan at an intersection between highway 35 and highway 3335.
