  • Canadians don hockey jerseys to honor 16 killed in bus crash

Tobin was originally thought to have survived the crash, until it was discovered the coroner misidentified the young man. Xavier Lavelle, 18, had in fact survived the crash, while Tobin had not.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, meanwhile, said it will resume its playoffs Saturday. During the 2017-2018 season, he won nine out of 14 games before he was traded to the Humboldt Broncos.

"We know the family".

His wife said the service was "very emotional. very touching". "I heard he was an incredible teammate". "And it's very hard in that regard". "I'm part of a hockey community, so it was something that I could really relate to".

"And then it was why don't we get Langley minor hockey involved".

He wouldn't reveal what artists have been booked, but he said some acts have already been booked.

Chloe Friars, a 17-year-old member of Citadel high's girls hockey team, said she could relate to the Broncos players who often travelled the province for far flung games.


Grade 12 student Mason Oates showed up at Ascension Collegiate in Bay Roberts wearing his Astros' blue and yellow jersey for the school hockey team, a group of friends he views as a second family. All funds will go toward the families impacted by the crash.

A GoFundMe page was created on Friday with a goal to raise $4 million.

More than 100,000 donors in 65 countries have contributed to the campaign - ranked among the five most successful campaigns ever on the platform - with donations ranging from $5 to $50,000 coming from individuals, families, sports teams and multinational corporations.

Hundreds of mourners, many wearing the Humboldt Broncos colours of green and gold, attended the funeral Thursday for the team's play-by-play announcer who also coached in the community. "You just don't get over it".

West Shore resident Rod Hurst is one of almost 100,000 people who have donated or plan to donate to the fund, which as of late Tuesday was closing in on the $8 million mark. "This impacts us so deeply".

"I wish I could bring those people back, but I can't", he said. "I've had tears well up myself".
