  • Canadian junior hockey team bus involved in serious crash report says

The Junior Hockey League's Humboldt Broncos were en route to Nipawin, Sask., for a playoff game when a semi-truck collided with the bus. Of the 14 survivors taken to the hospital, three are in critical condition.

Canadian police said the truck driver was initially detained but has since been released and provided with mental health assistance.

Three STARS Air Ambulance helicopters were dispatched to the scene after the crash.

The bus was transporting the Humboldt Broncos ice hockey team when the accident occurred at about 5:00 p.m. on Friday near the Tisdale area, around 185 miles (300 km) north of Regina, the Canadian Press reported.

"Some of them come in and fit in really quickly", said Chilman.

He says he was shocked to hear about the crash that still "doesn't even seem real".

"Those guys were very entertaining to watch".

Broncos president Kevin Garinger stated: "Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this awful tragedy".

paNOW's Jeff D'Andrea was at the scene.

"Yeah, especially for me, being it's not far from where I played and where I spent hundreds of hours on the bus myself, going to games, coming from games in the middle of the night, things like that", the 23-year-old said.

D'Andrea has covered hockey in and around Prince Albert for over six years and knows a number of names on the roster who could have been on the bus. Thank you all for your kind words and messages.

He also stopped by the church where families were gathering.

"Our hearts ... the hockey world's an unbelievable world".

"From a grieving province, thank you to every one of the first responders and medical professionals for your courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

Rock Ruschkowski played against the Broncos as a member of the Milford Mustangs, who were knocked out of the playoffs this season by the Humboldt team.

Kennedy said it's important for everyone involved - including those injured, first responders, and the families of the victims - to talk through their feelings about the tragedy.

Opp said the coaching staff and players from the Hawks are waiting to help.

Ruschkowski said he was close with head coach Darcy Haugan and he will be missed in the hockey community.

"The sad part about it is, the bus trips are the ones that are supposed to be special for the boys", said Neufeld.
