Three of the 15 injured people were in critical condition, the RCMP said.

Rielly said teams like the Humboldt Broncos, who play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, are integral parts of the fabric of the province.

Matthieu Gomercic was on the bus when it was involved in a crash with a semi-truck on Highway 35 in Saskatchewan Friday.

Canadiens defenceman Brett Lernout played 2 1/2 seasons in the WHL for the Swift Current Broncos, a team that was touched by tragedy when four players were killed in a bus crash in 1986. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and communities affected by this awful tragedy.

"My worst fear as a player and a parent", she said. But the president of the Nipawin Hawks, who were scheduled to be the Broncos' opponent Friday, told the Star-Phoenix the truck had "t-boned" the bus.

I don't think it's fair to the movie to say, "This has to be directed by a man", or "That has to be directed by a woman". The question that's endlessly playing out in fans' minds is who those deaths will be in the ensemble.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted his support for Humboldt.

Kellington said her son was on the Broncos Bantam A team this past season.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the players and families involved in the tragedy. "We're a small community; some of those kids have been on the team for a number of years. Our whole community is in shock, we are grieving, and we will continue to grieve throughout this ordeal as we try to work toward supporting each other".

Joseph was very talented, McAvoy said, while he "obviously got a lot of it from his dad, a lot of it was on his own as well".

"We talked to him, but he said he couldn't feel his lower extremities so I don't know what's going on", she said, noting she will go to Saskatchewan today. "We know that the coroner and their office need to do their work and let families know".

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, said he knows players on the team.

Stephenson tuned into a Canadian radio station to listen to Humboldt's mayor address the community of 5,869 Friday night, where citizens were invited to the rink and to church to grieve together.

"I am grateful Ryan is alive and so heartbroken for the families of the lost", she said.

"Growing up playing hockey and spending a great deal of time in Saskatchewan, you gain appreciation for the kind of people that come from there", he said.

Jets centre Adam Lowry played his junior hockey in Swift Current, a city that is far too familiar with tragedy.

Jaxon Joseph, son of former National Hockey League defenseman Chris Joseph, is also among the dead, according to Sportsnet Canada.

I thank the first responders - the RCMP, the Provincial Response Team, and medical personnel - who worked tirelessly through the night, and continue to respond to this incredibly hard situation with courage and professionalism. It's open to North American-born players between the ages of 16 and 20.
