  • Humboldt Broncos coach, killed in bus crash, played at NMU

But as NHL players and fans looked forward to next week's start of the Stanley Cup playoffs, many also focused on Friday's tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 15 people - including 10 young amateur hockey players.

The assistant coach was from Strasbourgh, Sask., where he was named most valuable player previous year while playing with the Maroons in the Highway Hockey League.

And yet during playoff games, like the two held against the Nipawin Hawks this past week, the arena is so full of spectators, it is standing room only, Mr Eaton said.

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

"At this point, we don't even know how people can help", Garinger said.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, who was not identified, was initially detained but has since been released, according to the authorities.

In a profile published on the team's website in January, Schatz paid tribute to Joseph and fellow linemate Conner Lukan.

Photos from the scenes of the crash show both vehicles overturned, with the team's bus partially busted open.

Hunter's death was confirmed by his former team, the St. Albert Raiders in his Alberta hometown.

"Due to the large amount of evidence, information, and the number of victims this work will take some time", Zablocki said. Bieber traveled with the team often, and Hinz had just recently joined the company.

The Broncos roster lists 24 players ranging in age from 16 to 21 years old, as well as three coaches.

Fourteen other passengers in the accident were injured and were taken to the hospital.

Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel called Monday's arrest "one of the worst impaired driving arrests our agency has ever made". While in custody, Schleicher told officers that she was pregnant, bleeding and having a miscarriage, according to police.

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

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of our employees and athletes, and all who were affected by this disgusting tragedy".

Friday's crash brought back memories of another highway accident that claimed the lives of hockey players in Saskatchewan. But the incident is something many hockey parents in Western New York can sympathize with, including Tuzzolino.

Members of the hockey team, the Humboldt Broncos were going to the city Nipawin, Saskatchewan.

The hockey community and others rallied around the victims and their families after news of the crash, offering financial assistance.

In the meantime, an official GoFundMe web page to learn the gamers and households affected by the crash, as of Sunday morning, had raised nearly $three million of its $four million aim.

Kennedy said this situation made him think about the Swift Current Broncos crash in 1986 when four of his teammates were killed.

Cam Talbot, a goalie for the Edmonton Oilers in the National Hockey League, tweeted: "After all the hours spent on a bus with the boys over the years this one really hits home".

"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", he posted.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the town's mayor and team president to offer condolences.

The Leafs and Montreal Canadiens wore Humboldt Broncos decals on their helmets while playing each other in Toronto Saturday night, as did the Oilers and Canucks, who also wore Broncos-coloured green and yellow lapel ribbons in Edmonton.
