Canada embraces #jerseyday in support of Humboldt

At least 15 killed in hockey team's bus crash

The team jerseys may be different but the message is shared by all.

A Quebec school board is expressing regret over an incident where a student was asked to leave class for wearing a sports jersey in support of the victims of a bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team.

The grassroots event began earlier this week with a Facebook post by a group of parents in Langley, B.C., who started the hashtag #JerseysforHumboldt.

Last week, a youth hockey team suffered a bad tragedy after crashing into a semi that left a total of 15 people deceased, with the last being the Humboldt Broncos athletic therapist Dayna Brons, who passed away from injuries suffered during the wreckage.

The funds will go towards the helping the victims and families impacted by the fatal bus crash on April 6.

"They understand. My oldest is 11, so he very well comprehends what tragedy is", Opperman says.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of Patriots' offseason program
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter , Gronkowski is not planning to attend the start of the Patriots' offseason program. Schefter adds that Gronkowski and the Patriots have had "good communication" throughout the offseason.

Tournament organizer Mike Smith said it was pretty much a no-brainer to make a Humboldt fundraiser part of the tournament. "It's pretty impressive today". Touching the trophy with out having carried out for an NHL championship crew is a extensively identified superstition amongst hockey players.

"And we know exactly what that feeling would have felt like".

Stagg says you just don't know what can happen. "Those safe travels and those safe trips", she said. "So it's really hard not to think about those players and their families and all the suffering that community's going to be going through". Staff and council also took part in the "jersey day" movement on Thursday.

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.

"It's my son, it's his friends, it's the community", she said. Ethan, a leukemia patient, proudly displays his Maple Leafs jersey as he and his mother visited Regional Hospital's Met Campus.
