Canada mourns dead in junior hockey bus crash

Canada mourns dead in junior hockey bus crash

Sheldon Kennedy, a retired NHL player who was in a similar fatal bus crash involving a Saskatchewan hockey team in December 1986, tweeted that he was "sending all my thoughts and prayers to those impacted with the Humboldt Broncos bus crash".

"He was just a hardworking guy", said Jackson Ross.

The Washington Post could not immediately independently confirm the deaths, and Canadian authorities have said they are not yet ready to release the names of victims.

Signs in Nipawin, Sask., hung before Game 5 of a semifinal in between host team Nipawin Hawks and the Humboldt Broncos.

Another team Doerksen drove this spring, the Kinistino Tigers Senior Hockey Team, said on its Facebook page that Doerksen enjoyed being able to transport hockey teams and watch them play their games.

"It was a very somber mood on the ice, kind of one of those things where it could have been any one of us", Andrew Copp of the Jets said.

Before the game, a moment of silence was observed, with players from both teams standing in a circle around centre ice.

"Brody had recently joined our Golden West family, mentored by Tyler and the Bolt FM team", Lyndon Frieson, president of Golden West Radio, said in a statement posted on the station's website.

Opp said a semitruck T-boned the players' bus, adding that the coaching staff and players from the Hawks were waiting to help. According to an online team roster, players range in age from 16 to 21 and many are from Saskatchewan, with two from Humboldt. That community and the other small communities around Saskatchewan, they live for hockey, and they drive that team and players love living there, and I speak from experience.

"May you find strength in each other in this unimaginably tragic situation and know that you have our support today and in the weeks ahead".

101st soldiers killed in helicopter crash at Fort Campbell
The US Army says a military helicopter crash killed two troops at the Fort Campbell training grounds in Kentucky late Friday. Also on Tuesday in Djibouti in East Africa a Marin Corps AV-8B Harrier crashed during takeoff.

The tragedy was felt across Canada, where hockey is the dominant sport and many young players take long bus rides to tournaments. But the incident is something many hockey parents in Western New York can sympathize with, including Tuzzolino.

"They become part of the family", said Eaton, who took many into his own home over 10 years, growing so close he has been invited to weddings.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of our employees and athletes, and all who were affected by this terrible tragedy". "A" Hockey Club collided on Friday night in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

Citing relatives, the Canadian Press reported that the Broncos' head coach Darcy Haugan and the team's 20-year-old captain, Logan Schatz, were among those killed.

Meanwhile, an official GoFundMe page to benefit the players and families affected by the crash, as of Sunday morning, had raised almost $3 million of its $4 million goal.

Members of the National Hockey League expressed sadness over the news.

"The Broncos bus crashed on the way to Nipawin tonight Ryan is in hospital".

The father-of-three's voice cracked as he emotionally said: "I can't imagine being a parent, or the wife, or the kids at home, going through something like this".

The Leafs and Montreal Canadiens wore Humboldt Broncos decals on their helmets while playing each other in Toronto Saturday night, as did the Oilers and Canucks, who also wore Broncos-coloured green and yellow lapel ribbons in Edmonton.

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered his condolences on Twitter.
