  • Arena to host vigil for Humboldt Broncos victims

The Broncos website says Joseph, who was 20 years old, was among the leading scorers in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoffs, playing on a line with Logan Schatz, another player who lost his life in the crash.

Brent Stark, owner and president of the Wolverines, said this is a tragedy in the hockey community.

The pain extends to families, billet families, first responders, fans and all Canadians.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families tonight", he said.

Our hearts are heavy for all involved and we send our light and support, as Canadians we embrace each and everyone of you!

Between masses, streams of people - many of them red-eyed from crying - hugged each other as they attended a Knights of Columbus breakfast that had already been scheduled in the church's recreation room.

The team issued a statement following the accident, saying "The Humboldt Broncos organization has experienced incredible tragedy". "We will never forgot the members of our Broncos family who were taken from us and who were injured".

"We're a small community; some of those kids have been on the team for a number of years".

A vigil will be held on the hockey team's home ice on Sunday night, and a makeshift stage and hundreds of chairs sit ready for the memorial.

"Our whole community is in shock, we are grieving and we will continue to grieve throughout this ordeal as we try to work toward supporting each other", he said. You come to the rink ... what's better than that?

The truck driver was the lone occupant of the other vehicle at the time of the collision and was not injured, Zablocki said.

"If you come out across that intersection, the guy in the bus is absolutely, totally unaware that you're going to pull out in front of him because he doesn't even see you until you're both looking at each other".

Expressions of sympathy poured in from around the globe.

From the National Hockey League stars and coaches to politicians like Saskatechewan premier Scott Moe, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and even U.S. President Donald Trump, few were unmoved by the devastation.

"I can not imagine what these parents are going through, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this awful tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond", Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote in a tweet.

In a tweet, US President Donald Trump said he called Mr Trudeau to offer his condolences to the families of victims. "May God be with them all!"

An online fund-raising initiative to help the victims' families has raised C$3.05 million ($2.4 million).

The tragedy brought to mind an accident in 1986, when the Swift Current Broncos team bus slid off an icy highway and crashed in late December, killing four players.

At the news conference, Garinger noted that the loss of life will be felt across Canada - and by the players' host families as well. "They just become part of your family".

"It's small town anywhere". "We're asking for everyone's support and consideration in the coming days and weeks and months and years it will take us to get through this".
