On Friday, April 6, a tragic traffic accident took the lives of 15 people on a highway in northern Saskatchewan. All of the victims were players, staff and assistants from the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey team, riding the team bus to a playoff hockey game in the Centennial Arena in Nipawin.
Playing ice hockey is a popular activity for children and young adults growing up in Canada. Many dreams have started on local ice rinks, and these young hockey players were pursuing their dreams and aspirations.
It is hard to comprehend such a loss of life in this magnitude, and at this young stage in life. It leaves one feeling empty inside.
This photo is in memory of all of those who lost their lives, those who were injured, and those who were otherwise impacted by this event.
