Pittsburgh Penguins To Wear Humboldt Broncos Decals On Helmets To Honor Victims

Ms. Brons is among 16 people, including 10 players between the ages of 16 to 21, who have died since the bus and a semi-trailer collided while the team was travelling to Nipawin for a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoff game. Some left their athletic trainer bags out or hang them on their front door's handles. "My stepson is a goalie for the Seattle Thunderbirds, and both of my stepsons have ridden those buses for half their lives ... this horrific accident hit home for all of us - we haven't had a dry eye in the house all week". "I know what they were talking about - and I got an immediate knot in my stomach", said Hamilton, a board member for the Valley Wildcatsorganization.

"It was surreal", he said, wearing one of the team's black and red jerseys.

"It's hard to say the least. We need to push on and keep going with our everyday lives, but hold on to a lot of the dear things".

Ten youth players for the Saskatchewan-based Humboldt Broncos died in the crash, which occurred Friday when a bus taking them to another town for a playoff game struck a tractor-trailer on a stretch of highway in that province. They are now going through a tragedy that no family or community should experience. She says hosting an event like this helps show their support and solidarity with the community. "If I were to get on a bus, and to lose all your teammates and family like that it would be tragic".

A group of hockey parents from Langley, B.C. started the #JerseysforHumboldt plan over the weekend to show the victims' families that they are thinking of them.

"It's unbelievable how the community has pulled together and it's so close".

Many of those attending wore ribbons of green and gold.

Brons had formed a part of several other sports-related families since convocating from the University of Regina's kinesiology program in the fall of 2016.

"The families of Brock Hirsche and Logan Boulet should be proud of the sons they raised; the city and university communities are extremely proud of them, too", the university said in a statement posted to social media.

"This is an incredibly emotional and trying time for Broncos families". Ten players and five others, including two coaches were killed in last week's collision.

The Alberta Transportation Ministry confirmed Tuesday the company has been suspended indefinitely pending an investigation.
