Canadian police: Fatalities after bus crash involving junior hockey league team

The Broncos, traveling to a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoff game in Nipawin, were involved in a devastating accident and 14 people from the organization, including players and head coach Darcy Haugan, were killed.

Three people are in critical condition.

Jaxon Joseph, 20 - whose father Chris Joseph is a retired National Hockey League player - was on board a Saskatchewan junior team's bus that crashed Friday after a collision with a transport truck.

The bus was carrying the Humboldt Broncos of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League to the town of Nipawin for a playoff game. "At our core, we are one small town, neighbours, friends and families". "It is sort of every parent's worst nightmare".

"It's a terrible accident, my God", Darren Opp, president of the Nipawin Hawks hockey team, told the Globe and Mail.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted that he "cannot 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".

"All the best stories are told on the buses, in the locker rooms, in the private areas where it's just them", said Maurice, who coached junior teams in the Ontario Hockey League early in his career.

Warriors show 'pathetic effort' as Pacers pass 'big test'
According to the Warriors , McCaw will be re-evalulated in four weeks and his status for the playoffs has not been determined. Bogdanovic scored 14 points on 6 of 7 shooting in the first half, but only two of his makes were from beyond the 3-point arc.

Meanwhile, Canadian airline West Jet said Saturday it is putting larger planes on four flights scheduled for Sunday between Calgary and Saskatoon to help families affected by the tragedy.

"Saskatchewan, these are our boys", Premier Scott Moe tweeted in response to a photo shared by R J Patter, whose son Derek plays for the Broncos and is now recovering in a Saskatoon hospital.

"We just need to try to support each other as we deal with this incredible loss to our community, to our province, to our hockey world".

"Lots of them are waiting for information", he said.

"In most cases they become like one of your children or grandchildren", said Gail Chilman, a billeting co-ordinator with the Estevan Bruins, a team in the same league as the Broncos.

"We are extremely saddened to hear that former Eagle Jaxon Joseph has passed away in the Humboldt Broncos bus accident", reads a statement tweeted from his former team the Surrey Eagles' official account Saturday morning.

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, said he knows players on the team. "Sitting at home last night, when I saw that come up on my phone, I just felt sick".

Sinclair's Local Anchors Decry Fake News Via Same Script
The message calls out supposed bias and false messages in news stories spread on social media and in various unnamed news outlets. Stelter also obtained a memo from Sinclair news executive Scott Livingston directing television anchors to read the message.

"I think one thing that we underestimate with the impact of trauma, and PTSD, and going through things like this, is the magnitude of the impact", he says.

"I am grateful Ryan is alive and so heartbroken for the families of the lost", she said. STARS air ambulance said it sent three helicopters to the scene.

The Swift Current Broncos also shared their condolences. Condolences and tributes soon poured in across social media, including from his sister on Twitter. Earlier Friday, Moe thanked first responders and medical professionals for their "courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

Humboldt team president Kevin Garinger said the community was devastated by the news.

Four members of the Swift Current Broncos were killed in a bus crash in Saskatchewan in 1986.

Humboldt players range in age from 16 to 21, according to an online team roster.
