Agassiz Harrison residents pay tribute to Humboldt crash victims

The campaign has been organised by Sylvie Kellington, a resident of the city saskatchewanaise whose son has already played with the Broncos at a lower level.

Fifteen lives lost and in the closely knit family in the hockey world, there are very few who didn't know one of the 15, or didn't know someone who was close to them.

The team was on its way to Game 5 of a semi-final against the Nipawin Hawks, also in Saskatchewan, when the crash occurred around 5 pm Friday.

He knew she would have no problem working with a group of male hockey players.

Needham says what makes the Humboldt disaster even more tragic is that the team bus has always been considered a sort of sanctuary -- a safe place for players and coaches as they travel from game to game. "And then I'm not sure what happened after that".

Their teacher, Ahren Sternberg, who coaches numerous school's teams, said this accident has struck a chord among his students.
