Support for Humboldt Broncos continues in Williams Lake

The Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team was heading to a playoff game in Nipawin when their bus collided with a semi-truck, killing 15 people. A bus had crashed near Tisdale, Saskatchewan, about two and a half hours northeast of Delisle, and a group of junior hockey players on their way to their own playoff game had been injured.

But one of the team's players, who was badly injured in the crash, has given hope to at least six other people in medical need thanks to his status as an organ donor.

For Tobin's family, Wilby said, "this is not easy news for them to digest". Hundreds of people, including National Hockey League (NHL) players, attended an emotional vigil on Sunday at Humboldt's Elgar Petersen Arena.

"It is a process - it's not one individual that makes the identification decision", Drew Wilby, of Saskatchewan's Ministry of Justice, told reporters Monday. Trudeau visited survivors of the crash in a Saskatoon hospital earlier in the day.

"I would be remiss if I did not mention that the Glacier Kings are equally as traumatized by this tragedy as most everyone else".

Among those killed are the junior hockey team's head coach, Darcy Haugan, captain Logan Schatz, forwards Jaxon Joseph and Logan Hunter, defenceman Stephen Wack and the team's play-by-play radio announcer, Tyler Bieber.

"We know more today than we ever did back then", Kennedy said. While he said no one can claim to understand how this would be in His control, Brandow assured mourners God was with them in their grief.

"Losing a coach on a team like that would be not only just devastating, but sincerely heartbreaking", Stacy Davignon, coach of the Clinton Boys Varsity hockey team said.

That includes money from various National Hockey League players and teams.

Meanwhile, Xavier Labelle's family had confirmed his death over the weekend, with his brother writing in an Instagram post that he was heartbroken.

"I couldn't imagine losing a best friend and a teammate", Pawlick said.

"You think about it every time you are on the bus and obviously it could have been any team or organization that travels the way [teams] do in our country..."

The Canalta Hotels chain is also offering free rooms on Saturday in Melfort, Humboldt and Martensville, so family members can stay near the victims of the accident who are in hospital.
