The SJHL honoured the team in the wake of a collision last week when the Broncos’ bus collided with a semi truck just south of Nipawin, Sask. The Broncos were headed to Nipawin for an league semi-final game.
Sixteen people have died as a result of that crash and another 13 people were injured.
In a release, the league lauded each member of the Broncos team and support staff, starting with defenceman Logan Boulet.
The 21-year-old defenceman was from Lethbridge, Alta., was on life support after the crash until his organs could be donated. His godfather Neil Langevin said in a statement that Boulet’s organs will go to six patients in need.
“Logan Boulet led his club with six assists despite not playing a single on-ice game this past week as the Broncos sparked an entire country to unify in the aftermath of the tragic accident on April 6, 2018,” the SJHL said in a release.
