Junior hockey team bus crash in Canada leaves 15 dead, 14 injured

Saskatchewan bus crash The Humboldt Broncos

The Jets will also donate proceeds from the 50/50 draw at Bell MTS Place to the relief efforts, and the Edmonton Oilers have since announced that they will do the same. Bieber worked for the Humboldt station CHBO.

"Our prayers and heartfelt condolences are with the community of Humboldt and the players, families, and the entire hockey family", said Rennie Harper, mayor of Nipawin, in a statement.

"I can honestly say I didn't know a more kind-hearted, generous, caring and overall nice person", cousin Graeme Cross said in an online tribute.

"There's people, just sitting in the stands, stunned".

Doerksen's employer, Charlie's Charters, posted about the driver's death on Facebook.

Members of the hockey community took to social media to send their condolences and offer support to the families of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team.

And yet during playoff games, like the two held against the Nipawin Hawks this past week, the arena is so full of spectators, it is standing room only, Mr Eaton said.

The team, the Humboldt Broncos, was en route to Nipawin, about 265 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon, to play a game against the Nipawin Hawks.

One of the young men who died, among those who haven't been officially identified by RCMP, lived with him past year.

"He was very dedicated to his family and at the same time he was a hockey guy".

"It's something you remember when you're that young".

Canadian public broadcaster CBC spoke to the sister of coach Darcy Haugan, who said he was killed in the collision.

Babcock, fighting back tears, said that "it's got to rip the heart out of your chest".

Smith said Herold is survived by his mom, dad and an older sister. So was the Humboldt Broncos statistics keeper, Brody Hinz.

What's unfolding in Humboldt, Sask., is a national tragedy. "These are young boys, some of them still in high school".

The night of the crash marked a double tragedy for the family.

On Saturday, police confirmed there were 29 people on the Humboldt Broncos team bus, including the driver, at the time of the crash.

As word spread of the accident Friday night, dozens of Humboldt residents gathered at the Broncos' home ice rink to wait for news and take solace in the community, the Saskatoon StarPhoenix reported.

Tributes poured in online for Haugan who was described as an incredible mentor to young players.

The winger's death was confirmed by the Surrey Eagles, his former team in the British Columbia Hockey League.

More details about the victims of a deadly bus crash in Canada's Saskatchewan province emerged Sunday, a day after the tragic accident rocked their small community and the larger hockey world.

Forward Jaxon Joseph was one of the team's best players.

"I've really clicked with Joseph and Lukan". "Some of them are waiting to hear if their kids are alive", said pastor Jordan Gadsby.

"I'm going to miss you bro".

"It shows you how short life is", Hadwin said minutes after walking off the course in Augusta, Ga. In nine playoff games, he scored twice and added eight assists and 16 penalty minutes. He was 20 years old.

Family members were comforting each other during this hard time, Schatz said.

Both of the brothers grew up playing piano and sports together, Isaac said. "He just loved being a teammate". It's definitely something that hits close to home, I think. He had played with the Broncos for two seasons. He is said to have been provided "mental health and wellness assistance". Growing up around Swift Current, it was always in people's mind.

Many people wandered in and out of the arena throughout the morning.
