Tim Hortons is selling Humboldt Broncos donuts with 100% of the proceeds going to the players and their families. 

If you were going to splurge on donuts, now is the time to do it.

You have two Tim Horton's in St. Louis. You could convince them to make them, then buy them out and spread the joy on your next hockey road trip South.

That'd be a really bad investment for me, considering what happened to the previous TH franchisee around these parts.  Not to mention that you Rebs wouldn't appreciate the gesture, anyway.  nono02.gif

We'll let you trade them 2-for-1 for some Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Hockey players share close connection to bus crash victims, hold vigil in their honor

By Ted Allen - Liberty University News Service

Quote

Four members of Liberty University’s ACHA Division I men’s hockey team traveled to Canada on Wednesday morning to attend memorial services and comfort the families of survivors of last Friday’s bus crash that killed 15 players and staff and injured 14 others from the Humboldt Broncos.

...

On Tuesday afternoon, dozens of players from all five of Liberty’s ACHA teams stopped by the LIC to pray for the Humboldt Bronco Hockey family and community, as well as the truck driver who survived the crash. They signed cards that the four Flames team members will deliver to families.

Several members of the Peoria (Ill.) Rivermen, in town to face the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs in Wednesday night’s Southern Professional Hockey League playoff game at the LIC, also joined in the vigil.

Nearly 60,000 people from close to 60 countries have helped raise more than $9 million through a GoFundMe account set up days after the accident.

Humboldt survivor paralyzed from the chest down says he's not done with hockey

CBC Radio

Quote

Ryan Straschnitzki says he's grateful for all the support from Canadians and from people around the world

Ryan Straschnitzki says he's a little "tired and sore" but overall "not bad."

The defenceman with the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team is at Saskatoon's Royal University Hospital coping with the pain of his injuries from last weekend's deadly highway accident.

His neck and back are broken, and he is paralyzed from the chest down.

Still, he says, he is "just pushing through it, because pain is temporary."

Last week — just hours after the crash — Day 6 host Brent Bambury spoke with Ryan's father Tom Straschnitzki.

This week, he was able to connect directly with Ryan, who spoke to Day 6 from his hospital bed in Saskatoon.

Broadcasters offer to call games to honour Humboldt Broncos play-by-play announcer

Tyler Bieber was one of 16 people killed as result of team bus collision with semi-truck

Gregory Strong

The Canadian Press

When Les Lazaruk looked up at the broadcast booth at Elgar Petersen Arena during Tyler Bieber's funeral service, he thought of an idea to honour the memory of the Humboldt Broncos play-by-play announcer.

Lazaruk offered to call a Broncos game next season for free and he put out a call on Twitter for fellow broadcasters to do the same. It wasn't long before several prominent on-air personalities volunteered their services.

Sportsnet's Rob Faulds and TSN's Chris Cuthbert and Gord Miller all tweeted offers to participate in the initiative. Other broadcasters from a variety of leagues and sports also wanted to get involved and support the effort.

"Tyler loved sports and he was involved in sports in all kinds of ways because it was his passion," Miller said Friday from Chicago. "He loved to do it. I think a great way to honour him is to show our passion for it too." ...

Via the GoFundMe:

Quote

Updated 4/16:

First and foremost, the Broncos’ volunteer board of directors would like to express their tremendous love and sincere gratitude to everyone who has generously donated time and money to support our organization and its families, as we navigate through this dark and heart-wrenching time.

Today, I would like to provide you with an update on how the Broncos’ organization plans to manage and disperse the financial support we have received. 

We’ll accept donations through this GoFundMe until Wednesday, April 18th at 11:59PM MST. While no online donations will be accepted after that, the GoFundMe will remain live so we can continue to update everyone on our progress in allocating funds. 

The funds donated through the GoFundMe campaign will be transferred to a newly created non-profit corporation known as "Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc." to be allocated for their intended purpose. 

An advisory committee is being established to make a recommendation for the allocation of these funds, which will be held in trust until that allocation occurs. Once we have formalized the composition of this committee, we will provide you with an update.

Once donations to the GoFundMe are off, people who still want to help can contact the Broncos here:https://humboldtstrong.info/contact/

The Humboldt Broncos tragedy has brought back fuzzy memories Kyle Johnson would rather forget.

“We both shot up. I think we almost hit the roof. After that, I don’t remember a whole lot,” he said.

It’s been 15 months since a bus carrying his team, the SPHL’s Columbus Cottonmouths, rolled off an exit ramp en route to a game in Peoria, Ill.

“It was mayhem,” Johnson recalled. “A sleeper bus has bunks all the way up the wall, so they had all come off and the lounge had fallen apart. The bathroom was destroyed. You couldn’t tell it was a bus.”

Johnson sustained a career-ending neck injury and concussion.

He says the worst part was seeing goaltender Brandon Jaeger pulled from the rubble and taken to hospital for surgery, along with the team’s equipment manager.

Luckily, no one was killed.
