The team was heading north for a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks.

Police said early Saturday another 14 were injured, three of them critically.

The Broncos are the most successful team in Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League history.

The Junior A team was enroute to Nipawin, Sask. for Game 5 of the semi-finals against the Nipawin Hawks.

"Some of them are waiting to hear if their kids are alive", he said. We grieve with those facing news no parent or family should ever have to face.

She said most of the players call it a home away from home, and the host families consider themselves extra parents with an added son.

Darren Opp, president of the Nipawin Hawks, said a semi T-boned the players' bus.

"I can not imagine what these parents are going through, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this awful tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond", Trudeau tweeted.

A GoFundMe page started by a Humboldt resident has raised over $1 million with the money going to families at the appropriate time. "I can't imagine if this was us or any of our players with the Storm".

"We just need to try to support each other as we deal with this incredible loss to our community, to our province, to our hockey world".

Joseph was very talented, McAvoy said, while he "obviously got a lot of it from his dad, a lot of it was on his own as well". On a day such as Saturday, he thinks about the players that he's connected with and who have gone on off to play in hockey's bus leagues.

"There's connections everywhere it seems, it's a tight-knit family in hockey", said Chilman, who said she also knew the assistant coach of the team who was involved in the crash.

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, said he knows players on the team. "We've all been on those buses, on those roads and you just feel for these families because it's just a terrible situation".

The crash took place at around 5:00 pm (2300 GMT) Friday on Highway 35 about 28 kilometers (18 miles) north of the town of Tisdale, a trading center in an overwhelmingly agricultural region of the western province. STARS air ambulance said it sent three helicopters to the scene.

President Donald Trump said Saturday he spoke with Trudeau to "pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the awful Humboldt Team tragedy".

"Such a horrific situation that hit so very close to home for all of us who spent our lives at that age riding buses to hockey games and it being part of the fabric of playing in Canada". The Humboldt group took the Swift Current Broncos up on their offer of an affiliation between the Western Canada Hockey League Broncos and a new junior-A club.

"Humboldt Broncos weighing heavy in our hearts and minds tonight", the team said on Twitter.

Former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy, who was one of the players on the bus in 1986, also sent a message of support. Earlier Friday, Moe thanked first responders and medical professionals for their "courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

Funds from all corners of the country and beyond are pouring in for the families of a Saskatchewan junior hockey team following a tragic crash that has left 14 dead.
