Humboldt Broncos preparing for emotional night on Wednesday

The Humboldt Broncos organization is preparing to take a difficult but important step forward this week. Their regular season home opener goes Wednesday night against the Nipawin Hawks, the same team they were facing in last year's playoffs when the tragic accident happened that took 16 lives. TSN's Ryan Rishaug is in Humboldt where the town and the team are preparing to move forward with a new season.

In advance of the game, an hour-long pre-game show will honour those lost and affected by the team's April 6 tragedy and look forward to the season to come. The home opener will be followed by an on-ice ceremony. 

The game broadcast is hosted by James Duthie and features TSN's hockey broadcast team, including Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, with play-by-play from Chris Cuthbert and colour commentary from Ray Ferraro. SportsCentre Reporter Ryan Rishaug reports from rinkside, with contributions from Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli. 

 

Humboldt was on its way to play the Hawks in a playoff game on April 6 when the team bus and a tractor-trailer collided at a rural intersection. Sixteen people, including 10 players, died and 13 players were injured.

Brayden Camrud and Derek Patter are the only two survivors that are back playing with the Broncos this season.
