The BCHL, like the rest of the sports world, is in mourning in the wake of the news from Saskatchewan about the Humboldt Broncos Friday evening.
Humboldt’s team was certainly familiar to the BCHL and a big name on the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) landscape, having hosted the RBC Cup national championship in 2012 and having iced a strong team season after season in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL).
“There are no words to fully express our grief over this terrible tragedy,” said BCHL commissioner John Grisdale. “It goes without saying that the BCHL and its board of governors are in 100 per cent support of the Humboldt Broncos and the SJHL.
“We will provide whatever we can to ease their pain and help work through the days to come.”
An online fundraising campaign with a goal of $2 million has been started in support of the Humboldt team. Anyone who wishes to contribute can do so by CLICKING HERE
