Canada embraces #jerseyday in support of Humboldt

It comes six days after the Humboldt Broncos team bus was involved in a fatal crash that claimed the lives of 16 people.

"There's a lot of hockey players on the police department, and we brought a few of them out here today to really show support and really show, as a nation, as a community, we mourn with them", said Capt. Kevin Warych, Green Bay Police Dept. It's any hockey player's dream to see the Stanley Cup up close and personal like that!

She went to Humboldt Public School with one of the deceased in the crash, team statistician Brody Hinz, 18.

Many people also added headsets, statistics sheets and other items to recognize the team broadcaster, the volunteer statistician and the bus driver lost in the crash.

T-shirts with the hashtag #SaskStrong were on sale near the entrance with $5 from the funds being donated to the Broncos. "Those safe travels and those safe trips", she said. "It's just part of hockey".

People are showing up to work and school decked out in sports jerseys as part of Jersey Day.

Farialle Pacha, an employee of a wealth-management firm in downtown Toronto, wore her cousin's American Hockey League sweater in solidarity with the Humboldt Broncos.

Tom Straschnitzki - whose 19-year-old son, Ryan, was badly injured in the junior hockey team's bus crash - was in a waiting area at Royal University Hospital on Friday night when a large box was wheeled in.

Canadians across the country were asked to wear sports jerseys on Thursday in honour of the Humboldt Broncos. Ethan, a leukemia patient, proudly displays his Maple Leafs jersey as he and his mother visited Regional Hospital's Met Campus.
