Canadian rapper and songwriter Drake attended Game One between the Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Saturday night.
Sitting courtside, Drake wore a Humboldt Broncos jersey in honor of the 16 players and coaches who died last week as they bussed to a game.

Tributes for the Humboldt Broncos have been happening across North America since the tragic accident occurred on April 6. NHL teams have held moments of silence and sent gifts and monetary donations to the club. The hockey community have put their sticks out on their porches as well as wearing hockey jerseys to work and school.
