R-C-M-P say 14 people were killed in a bus crash involving a junior hockey team in Saskatchewan.
Local police say another 14 were injured, three of them critically. The bus was carrying the Humboldt Broncos of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.
It collided with a transport truck northeast of Saskatoon. The team was on the way to Nipawin for a playoff game when the crash happened.
The Humbolt Broncos play in the same division in Saskatchewan as the West Kelowna Warriors do here.
The Broncos are a perennial solid team in the SJHL. The 2015-16 season they missed the playoffs for the first time in 35 years.
The Broncos have also won the RBC Royal Bank Cup two times…in 2002-03 and 2007-08.
The West Kelowna Warriors won the RBC Championship in 2016 and have never met the Broncos.
The entire Junior Hockey system in Canada is in shock to hear of this news. A GoFundMe Page has been set up by fans of the team.
