Fundraiser to support Humboldt Broncos surpasses $4 million in donations

Logan Boulet will donate his organs to six different people after a crash left the Humboldt Broncos team bus devastated

Tobin, an 18-year-old goaltender for the Humboldt Broncos, was one of the 15 people who died in a horrific crash involving the team bus Friday evening in central Saskatchewan. "Hockey was important to him but he was also a very caring person", said Bogress.

"A lot of these boys looked alike", Wilby said, noting all the members of the team had dyed their hair blonde for the playoffs.

In a devastating mix-up, a victim and survivor in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash were misidentified as the other, a mistake described as unprecedented in Saskatchewan's history.

Resident Erin Schulte "said wouldn't it be great as a community if we could have somewhere that we can have people drop off extra sticks and be able to pick up extra sticks if they don't have them", Filby said.

A similar incident occurred back in 1986 when four players with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL were killed claiming the lives of Trent Kresse, Scott Krueger, Chris Mantyka and Brent Ruff. "I landed on our starting goalie and he had a concussion and a separated shoulder".

"You don't have to have been a hockey player to identify with those who were on the bus", said Hope. "We've all been talking about it". As somebody who has been on that bus ride hundreds of times, it's incomprehensible.

"Our hearts go out to the Humboldt parents, players and their organization".

The handsome young man with a penchant for sporting bow ties on game day is also present, if only in spirit.

"Everybody is kind of stepping up and doing something", he said. "It really could have been anybody else".

You break out a deck of cards, maybe watch a DVD, or toss on your headphones and press play on your favorite playlist and hunker down with the almost two dozen teammates, more so brothers, for what will feel like countless hours.

"It's gut wrenching any time something like this happens". If you want a glimpse of how much this team matters in this small farming community and how much hockey is part of the fabric in Canada's heartland, all you had to do was speak with John and Matthew Kirzinger on Sunday night. The pain will never quite go away, but hopefully they will find a way to manage it and move on.

"He wasn't on the bus".

Murdocco said while the actual agenda for Thursday's vigil is still coming together, people are being encouraged to wear their sports jerseys and buckets will be stationed at the door for donations to help the families of those affected by the crash in Saskatchewan.

National and worldwide support poured out for the families and community affected by the crash. "That's what family does", Lewis said.

Boulet's cousin Julie Kindt said on Facebook that Boulet, 21, had been on life support until his organs could be donated.

"We remember the words of Jesus, who told us: 'You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy, '" Rev. Carboni said. It's a really hard situation. "My thoughts and prayers are with the Joseph family".
