Condolences for Humboldt Tragedy
Submitted By Stacey Dineen on Mon 04 09, 18
By now, we have all heard about the terrible tragedy that occurred in Saskatchewan late Friday afternoon. A hockey community, much like our own, has been devastated by a terrible bus accident has claimed 15 lives and left survivors with serious injuries. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the players, families and community of the Humboldt Broncos and Humboldt, Saskatchewan during this time, from one small town hockey community to another.  Hockey is family.

Many of our members showed their support by wearing a hockey jersey on Thursday, April 12th as a tribute to our Canadian hockey family that is grieving this terrible loss.  Other families showed their support by leaving their hockey sticks out by their door with their porch light on.  Below are a small collection of photos from our membership.
