Mainers affected by Humboldt hockey team tragedy

The anguish caused by the crash was compounded by a coroner's mistake that resulted in one Humboldt player, Xavier Labelle, being confirmed alive Monday, but another, Parker Tobin, announced as having died.

Fifteen lives lost and in the closely knit family in the hockey world, there are very few who didn't know one of the 15, or didn't know someone who was close to them.

Friday's fatal collision involved the Humboldt Bronco's team bus and an articulated lorry on a rural highway.

"A lot of these boys looked alike", Drew Wilby said. "Just that anything like that can happen at any time, it's just scary", said Penguins player Jeff Taylor.

Unaware her son was dead, Parker's mother tweeted in the aftermath of the crash that he was being airlifted to hospital and was stable.

Matthew Labelle, a second cousin of Xavier, said that "it's obviously been quite the rollercoaster for our family".

Members of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds 431 Air Demonstration Squadron placed hockey sticks against the noses of their aircrafts on April 10.

Once there, Isaac Labelle said, his father told him that there didn't appear to be any survivors.

"I think there was hope for everyone but the injuries on that accident were significant for everyone".

After the news was released by her family, Wickenheiser expressed her condolences.

Tobin is among the 15 killed in the crash in Canada's Saskatchewan province.

The Humboldt Broncos' trainer, a 25-year-old woman who had been with the team for nearly two years, has died, Saskatchewan's coroner announced Wednesday - bringing the death toll from the team bus's collision with a semi-trailer to 16.

The deaths occurred last Friday night when the team's bus was T-boned by a semi-truck as the team made its way to Nipawin for a playoff game. The bus collided with a semi-trailer truck. "It is also the largest campaign to date in Canada and now one of our top five largest campaigns globally".

"The whole community coming together making sure everybody is okay and that people who need help actually get help, surrounding communities like Lanigan and Bruno and all of those small little towns coming together making sure people are going to be fine as well as billet families and parents of the kids".

"We further encourage you to share your photos on social media so that all affected by the tragedy will know the entire WCDSB community is thinking of them, and praying for them", said Waterloo Catholic District School Board education director Loretta Notten in a public message.
