At Least 14 Dead in Bus Crash Involving Canadian Junior Hockey Team

At least 14 people are dead after a passenger bus carrying a junior league hockey team in western Canada’s Saskatchewan province crashed into a tractor-trailer on Friday, police confirmed to PEOPLE on Saturday.

The Humboldt Broncos, a team made up of athletes aged 16 to 20, were on their way to a Saskatchewan Junior League playoff game in the town of Nipawin, according to a statement on the team’s website.

Police said on Friday the crash happened on Highway No. 35,  approximately 18 miles north of Tisdale.

A total of 28 people — including team members, coaches, and the bus driver — were on board at the time of the crash, authorities confirmed in a statement Saturday morning. 14 were killed while the other 14 were sent to a local hospital where they are being treated with “a variety of injuries.” Of the 14 hospitalized, three are in critical condition.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke out about the tragedy on Twitter.

“I cannot imagine what these parents are going through,” Trudeau tweeted, “and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond.”

“We are not confirming the identity of the victims at this time, including whether the deceased are players or coaches,” a statement from Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. “We will be working with our partner agencies to ensure families are notified as soon as possible and the appropriate supports are provided to families and others who are impacted by this extremely tragic incident.”

Family members of those on the bus are being asked to call 306-752-8700 for more information. A gathering spot for families has been set up at the Nipawin Apostolic Church.

The scene is still being investigated by Nipawin RCMP, police officers from the surrounding detachments and investigators, police said.

Broncos president Kevin Garinger shared his condolences in a statement on the team’s website.

“Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this horrible tragedy,” his statement read. “Our Broncos family is in shock as we try to come to grips with our incredible loss.”

Varvatos to Dress Hockey Greats for NHL All-Star Weekend

John Varvatos is a self-professed hockey junkie. One of his most cherished memories is when the Detroit Red Wings presented him with a hockey sweater on the ice last year after he opened a store in his hometown. “They welcomed me back and the coolest part is that they let me pick the jersey number, so I picked nine for Gordie Howe who was one of my heroes growing up,” he said.
Varvatos will show his love for hockey once again this weekend during the National Hockey League’s run-up to the All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Varvatos has collaborated with the league for TheNHL100, a black-tie gala Friday night that will honor the 100 greatest players of all time. Each of the players will receive a customized blazer created by Varvatos.
“About 70 of them are still living,” the designer said. So he had his Italian factory create made-to-measure black wool and mohair-blend jackets for each honoree that includes TheNHL100 logo on the breast pocket and the player’s name embroidered on the interior. “They’re really one of a kind,” he said.
The project comes at a time when Varvatos is rejiggering his business to adapt to the tough retail climate.

‘Red Army’ Trailer Examines Hockey And Life Behind The Iron Curtain

“Red Army” is one of the year’s most talked about documentaries, with critics raving after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Examining the Soviet Union’s Red Army ice hockey team’s Cold War era domination of the sport, the film gives a behind-the-scenes look at the team and the culture surrounding the USSR.

“Told from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the story portrays his transformation from national hero to political enemy,” a press release explains. “From the USSR to Russia, the film examines how sport mirrors social and cultural movements and parallels the rise and fall of the Red Army team with the Soviet Union.”

Also, at 40 seconds, there are a couple bears holding hockey sticks, on ice, playing hockey. Watch the trailer above. “Red Army” premieres January 22, 2015.
