"The other fourteen people were sent to hospitals with a variety of injuries; three of these people have injuries that are critical in nature".

The deadly Saskatchewan crash between a semi-trailer and bus carrying a junior hockey team brought back painful memories of another tragic accident that happened in Quebec in 1974, according to a former junior hockey team owner.

The collision occurred at about 5 p.m. Friday on Highway 35 near Tisdale, northeast of Saskatoon.The team was on it's way to Nipawin to play Game 5 of its Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League semifinal series.

Lauer said he grew up attending Broncos games and played for the team briefly when he was 15 before moving up to major juniors.

Hockey teams and players from leagues across North America tweeted messages of support, many with the hashtag #prayersforhumboldt. Mr. Trump said in a tweet Saturday afternoon that he had spoken with Trudeau "to pay my highest respect and condolences" to relatives of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team.

Team President Kevin Garinger said: "Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this awful tragedy".

Mr Trudeau said in a statement that "our national hockey family is a close one, with roots in nearly every town - small and big - across Canada". "We grieve with those facing news no parent or family should ever have to face".

That is especially true in Humboldt, a town of less than 6,000 people in Canada's Great Plains region. "We're overwhelmed with the outpouring of condolences we've received from the province and internationally", said Humboldt mayor Rob Muench at the press conference.

Personally I am happy, it's still a three-year contract. It has put us in a very good position in the table. My genuine feeling is he deserves it.

To the entire Humboldt community: We are here for you.

"First thing for me was, I got really sad for the kids. their parents who are thinking their kids are away playing junior hockey headed to the road game".

"It was a disaster", he told the Saskatoon Star Phoenix paper.

"We were a family", a former Broncos player, Daigon Elny, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. You come to the rink ... what's better than that? "Now I don't know what goes on". No names were released and police would not say whether the dead include players or coaches. It says an investigation is taking place.

Darren Opp, president of the Hawks, said a semi T-boned the players' bus that was coming to play against their team. He said as a hockey player at that age, riding buses to and from games is so commonplace that you never think twice about it.

For many Canadians, this crash was reminiscent of another one involving youth hockey players in Saskatchewan.

Chilman currently hosts three players in her home right now, and has been taking in young hockey players from as far as the United States and Slovakia since 1995.
