Humboldt Broncos stats keeper Brody Hinz died in team bus crash

Saskatchewan junior hockey team bus involved in deadly crash: RCMP

The stories of the 15 lives taken when a bus carrying a junior hockey team crashed with a truck continued to emerge Sunday as the town of Humboldt prepared a vigil to mourn those lost. The Broncos were headed to the town of Nipawin for a playoff game.

Glen Doerksen's employer Charlie's Charters posted the news on their Facebook page.

"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.

The tractor-trailer would have had to yield to a stop sign before crossing over the highway that the hockey bus was travelling on.

Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan was among those who died in the crash. "Going around and playing in small towns and being able to be a part of one of those teams is extremely special".

Garinger was wearing the yellow and green jersey of Conner Lukan, a team member from Slave Lake, Alberta, who billeted with his family and who died in the crash.

The team issued a brief statement on Saturday confirming there was a crash involving the team and there were "multiple fatalities and serious injuries".

The site confirmed that play-by-play announcer Tyler Bieber and Brody Hinz were killed.

Opp said the coaching staff and players from the Hawks are waiting to help.

The players, aged 16 to 21, are mainstays at community fundraisers, hospitals and senior citizen homes. "A lot grew up in the community and everybody knows each other".


Forward Jaxon Joseph, who is the son of former National Hockey League player Chris Joseph, along with forward Logan Hunter and defensemen Stephen Wack, Adam Herold and Xavier Labelle were among the dead, according to family members and others.

Many members of the hockey and sports world have tweeted their condolences.

What is clear, though, is that a great many families, a hockey league and a community are reeling from an nearly unfathomable tragedy.

"Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy", he said.

Some of those injured aboard a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team Friday, April 6, 2018, were taken to Nipawin Hospital.

A Humboldt Broncos player who is reported killed in a horrific Friday evening bus crash is being remembered by a former teammate as a player and friend who "brightened up the locker room".

Less than 17 hours after it was launched, a GoFundMe account organized to raise funds for the victims and families of the junior hockey team has received in excess of $1 million in donations from almost 17,000 contributors. NHL teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Pittsburgh Penguins gave money, as did hockey equipment manufacturer Bauer Hockey, which shared a link to the GoFundMe on its Twitter account.

Lane Hodnefield and Patrick Janex, both first-time blood donors, said those involved in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash inspired their donations.

I can not imagine what these parents are going through, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this bad tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond.

Many people have reached out with condolences to the Humboldt community, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
