15 Dead in Canadian Bus Crash Involving Junior Hockey Team

posted by @JoeyRadio - 

The population of Humboldt, Saskatchewan of just 6,000, swelled as mourners gathered for an evening of prayer and hymns in memory of the young Humboldt Broncos ice hockey players and team support staff killed when their bus collided with a semi-trailer on Friday.

It was an overflow crowd at the vigil, with family of the Broncos players joined by Canada's ice hockey community and dignitaries, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Mourners, many in green-and-yellow Broncos jerseys, spilled out of the Elgar Petersen Arena into viewing areas at the curling rink and high school.

The Broncos had a great day yesterday with the man himself, Elgar Petersen. The boys made the trip to Cudworth for a skate and a visit. Very fortunate to have such a dedicated and positive person as a part of this organization! Thank you!

This community of 6,000 people has the support of millions and has raised more than their goal. 

Leafs coach Mike Babcock, a Saskatchewan native and former Detroit Red Wings coach, choked back tears as he spoke of the tragedy Saturday morning.
