Hundreds came out to the arena in Humboldt to honour the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash that happened Friday evening.
Sunday night, the Elgar Petersen Arena was full but not for what would’e been game 6 of the playoffs. A vigil was held for the victims on the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, where 15 people died and 14 injured.
Watch the vigil HERE.
A separate vigil was also held in Sasktoon last night. (SOURCE: Dan Zakreski/CBC)
Had the opportunity to work in a town for two years that was much like Humboldt, there was nothing but pride for the local junior hockey team and it was more than just a game. You knew the players, coaches, trainers and all those involved in the organization like you've known them your entire life. There are no words to describe the tragic accident involving the #HumboldtBroncos and my heart breaks for the friends, families and communities. 💚💛💙 Sending thoughts, prayers and love your way! You will get through this together. #HumboldtStrong #PrayersForHumboldt #WinnipegIsBehindYou #Winnipeg #TheForks
