"We are all joined in the need to help the team, the many families impacted and the community as they deal with such a awful loss", said Mel Duvall, a spokesperson for Calgary-based Husky Energy Inc., which donated $15,000 to the fund. "Saskatchewan is home to about 1,000 of our employees and this has affected everyone at Husky deeply".

"So it's people who are coming together to say "I wanna help" and they're doing it in any way they can", he said.

Families in local towns volunteer to house young players who have been drafted into the league. Families who provide homes for players are a large part of junior hockey in Canada.

Attention in the Saskatchewan town where 15 members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team were killed in a bus crash is turning to supporting students as they return to school without some of their classmates. The RCMP said Saturday that a 15th person had died.

Player Nick Shumlanski, who was released from hospital, issued a statement thanking people for their support.

"Some of them come in and fit in really quickly", said Chilman.

"As proud members of the CJHL, our league stands with our hockey family in the SJHL and with the Broncos organization during this exceptionally hard time", it reads.

They said they wished "putting on the foil" or "buying a soda after the game" could help.

"I think from what I saw (Sunday) and what I learned (Sunday) is everybody that I've met here is trying to do the best they can", he added.

A memorial sits near the site in Saskatchewan of the crash involving the Humboldt Broncos.

Upon hearing the news that he was paralyzed from the waist down as a result of the horrific collision between his hockey team's bus and a semi-truck, 18-year-old Ryan Straschnitzki told his father he would be switching sports.

Relatives were involved in identifying the remains of the bus crash victims at a makeshift morgue, said Wilby. "I just can't wrap my head around it".

Zeke Fillion is one of many transport operators in the city and is now the bus driver for the BC Major Midget Hockey League Cariboo Cougars.

Few of us have ever been to Humboldt, Saskatchewan, or will ever go there. "I can only imagine what that team means to Humboldt, Saskatchewan and all those kids, and staff and team members and coaches", Stone said.

"I loved playing for the Broncos and I will always have a connection to the team", he said.

"It was devastating, you have no words to explain it and as I was getting up at three in the morning getting ready to do my mine run I heard of this and it was just devastating and I have no words to explain how I feel". A previous version said Morgan Rielly billeted with families in Wilcox, Sask. and Moose Jaw, Sask.
