Hockey's everything in Canada, but in Saskatchewan every community's fairly small, so everybody knows everybody and you try and look out for each other and take care of each other.

In January 2008, seven basketball players on a youth team and their coach's wife died in New Brunswick when a semi-trailer clipped their van at night.

The identities of those killed and injured.

The manager of Herold's previous team, the Regina Pat Canadians, confirmed his death to The Canadian Press. He was drafted 35th overall by the Raiders in the WHL's 2016 bantam draft. He had played with the Broncos for two seasons.

"My heart is broken". He lit up the room.

"Now I don't know what goes on now".

Graeme Cross said in an online tribute that his cousin Mark was a caring and generous young man with an awesome smile.

"Mark was in his element in the hockey arena and I could think of no better mentor for junior hockey players to have than Mark Cross".

Steven Wilson, a play-by-play announcer in Weyburn, Sask., called Haugan "the classiest guy" in the league.

The young player was working towards a university hockey scholarship, and was having a "really good year" with the Broncos.

"It's hard", Kelly Schatz said. "For me, I think you've got to try and find some positives out of a bad situation".

The Edmonton native's death was confirmed by the Surrey Eagles, his former team in the British Columbia Hockey League.

Chow says plans for the SJHL playoffs remain unclear for now.

He played for Elmira's ECHL team before moving onto pro hockey.

A 15-year-old boy is dead and an 18-year-old is facing multiple charges following a auto crash in southern Manitoba.

"Stephen has always been an awesome person, son, big brother, and cousin. He's also been provided with some mental health and wellness assistance", Zablocki said Saturday afternoon.

Victims' families, friends and supporters of the team gathered at a Nipawin church for information and support. "He will truly be missed".

Gary Bettman, the commissioner of the National Hockey League, also issued a statement in support of the cummunity.

"Our trips to Foam Lake and Allan were on frightful highways due to winter storms", the Tigers wrote.

"We've all been part of those communities, we've all got someone who is affected".

The 18-year-old Hinz had recently started tallying the Broncos' numbers for Humboldt radio station CHBO.

"There have been multiple fatalities - our whole community is in shock", said Kevin Garinger, president of the Humboldt Broncos of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. York will also be displaying Cross' jersey. He would have celebrated his 17th birthday on April 12.

"I am deeply saddened by his family's loss", Phillips wrote.

Logan Hunter, an 18-year-old from St. Albert, began his Junior A career with the Humboldt Broncos in March of 2017. "Down to earth, loved playing with the kids".

"He always came with a smile on".

Four Broncos players are Raiders' alumni, according to the club's Facebook page.

Ten players are from Alberta with a few originally from the Whitecourt Wolverines.

"God bless Darcy Haugan for being an incredible mentor and coach to young hockey players and prayers for his family to help cope with their enormous loss", the Western Provinces Hockey Association wrote on Twitter.

Lukan was one of seven Albertans on the team.

The night of the crash marked a double tragedy for the family.

"A lot of people have kids that play on hockey teams that travel from town to town", he said. "He was a ferocious competitor who had a vibrant approach to life".
