Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy felt by Langley hockey community

People are being encouraged to wear their hockey jerseys on April 12 to show support.

Hockey makes a very large nation seem much closer as links between the Humboldt, Sask. Broncos and this community become apparent since the shocking bus crash on April 6.

Trinity Western University coach Barrett Knopf once coached Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan when he was a player. His family has announced that Haugan is one of the 14 casualties.

TWU Spartan Jarrett Fontaine is originally from Humboldt, a small Saskatchewan town of about 5,600 people, and was a player on the Broncos.

And in 2017, TWU announced the signing of Garrett Mason, a Bronco goalie. There’s no word yet on him in the aftermath of the crash.

Langley Minor Hockey has voiced its support for those most directly affected by the tragedy: “There are no words. Thinking of this team, their families and the community during this difficult time.”
