The Yellowknife Wolfpack hockey program will host a charity game in honour of the Humboldt Broncos this coming Sunday, April 15.
The game will take place from 5-7pm at the city’s Ed Jeske arena. Entry is by donation, and the game will feature a mix of atom and peewee athletes.
Kacee MacLean, a member of Yellowknife minor hockey’s board, confirmed the details on Monday. MacLean said the group will also host a 50-50 draw and asked for raffle table donations. Anyone wishing to volunteer or contribute can contact Kacee by email.
Fifteen people died and a further 14 were injured when a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos hockey team collided with a transport truck in Saskatchewan on Friday.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and hockey legend Don Cherry are among those to have since reached out in support of the team, while more than $5 million has been raised for the affected families through online fundraisers.
