On nearly any other morning, Mike Babcock's pre-game chat with reporters might begin with banter about his line combinations, scratches or the playoffs set to begin next week.

Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock, who grew up in nearby Saskatoon, spoke to reporters on Saturday.

He was in pain, just like his home province.

The junior hockey team's bus was on the way to a playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks in northeastern Saskatchewan when it collided with a truck on Friday.

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".

"Tonight, we all must pray for these families". Commissioner Curtis Zablocki said Saturday. Saskatchewan is a great community of people.

The Humboldt Broncos were on their way to a match when their coach was smashed into by an eighteen-wheel lorry.

Saturday was the final night of the regular season for most of the National Hockey League's teams. Authorities released no details of the collision, but said an investigation into the cause is continuing.

Those victims were also on the minds of athletes in other sports.

A moment of silence was also observed in Las Vegas on Saturday morning, where Brad Gushue and his rink from St. John's, N.L., is vying for a second straight men's world curling championship.

They were seeking solace after learning the devastating news that much of the squad of its beloved junior hockey team had been killed, and many others wounded, in a awful motorway crash the day before.

The Winnipeg native said that accident still resonates in the community. Excitement had been building at home games earlier in the week, said Garinger, hope for something big. "It's awful what happened, so I'm just trying to help out in any way that I can", Hodnefield said.

A semi-trailer collided with a passenger bus carrying members of the Humboldt Broncos about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale, Sask.

Wilson said he filled in a few times for Bieber because he was also busy coaching the Humbolt high school's basketball and football teams.

"My first reaction was this can't be true", said Dan Ukrainetz, who was to be the game's colour commentator.

"He was just a hardworking guy", said Jackson Ross. "It give you chills to think about". "We offer our heartfelt condolences to Pittsburgh Penguins alumnus Chris Joseph, whose son, Jaxon, was among those who tragically passed away in the Humboldt Broncos bus accident". "It was insane to see exactly how bad it is". Hockey's everything in Canada, but in Saskatchewan every community's fairly small, so everybody knows everybody and you try and look out for each other and take care of each other.

However as NHL gamers and followers appeared ahead to subsequent week's begin of the Stanley Cup playoffs, many additionally targeted on Friday's tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 15 individuals - together with 10 younger novice hockey gamers.

But that means the grief from the tragedy has spread even further, Garinger said. The teams played a lengthy game Wednesday that Nipawin won 6-5 in three overtimes in Humboldt, leaving Nipawin with a 3-1 series lead.
