15 members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team died after a tragic traffic accident on Friday. Across the NHL and sporting world, teams honored the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team with a moment of silence before their games. Many teams wore the logo of the Broncos on their helmets. Some had the Broncos name sewn into the back of their jerseys.
The Chicago Blackhawks and Winnipeg Jets had the most powerful pregame ceremony of the night. The Jets and Blackhawks joined in a circle at center ice during a moment of silence and an emotional rendition of the Canadian national anthem.
Other hockey leagues and sporting leagues also honored the Humboldt Broncos as well.
