Tribute to the Humboldt Broncos

Humboldt Saskatchewan is a small Western town...Mid-East in a Province... where big hearts can be found.

article continues below

Their team is the BRONCOS, and Hockey is their game...With pucks and sticks on the ice...They carved out their fame.

In a Province that gave us “Gordie”, where number “9” played and excelled...Came more “Shinny Clubs”...and NHL’ers we beheld.

Now Hockey was alive ...in a Town that loved its’ sport...So HUMBOLDT named them “BRONCOS”...wild horses of a sort.

Then,...on a cold day in April...when the calendar marked “6th”... Young men and staff together...On the road they took a trip.

With 29 on board, A family “were they all...”To a play-off game in NIPAWIN...They were answering their call.

And the BRONCOS were “eager to perform”...”To perform at their very best”...But no-one could have foretold...Well sadly, You know the rest!

So struck with grief and sorrow...when the story “made the news”...Many tears flowed in Canada...and many knees “hit the pews”.

And although some came near and far... to be on this BRONCOS team...HUMBOLDT claims You as their own...”It’s only Right”, So it would seem.

Your Hockey Family is vast...and our affection for You is strong... In our hearts and prayers You’ll remain...For it is there YOU belong!

....And Now We REMEMBER....

We Remember: ...”LOGAN” shoots LEFT and “JAXON” shoots RIGHT...And “TOBS” will be in Net...protecting the ‘Pipes’ tonight.

And We Remember: ...That “ADAM” and “STEPHEN” will defend the Zone...So no opposing team...will be “breaking in alone”.

And We Remember:...”DARCY” behind the bench...”rolling out the lines”...Now who could stand a chance...when the BRONCOS look so fine!

And We Remember:...”DAYNA”-The Team Trainer ...Both a loyal Soul and Friend...Promoting health and fitness...An Inspiration to the end!

And We Remember:.”TYLER” in the booth....announcing the ‘play by play’...”C.H.B.O.” his ‘home from home’...We’ll miss him every day!

And many more were taken from us...To God they now belong,... So in HIS arms they can ‘rest-in-peace’...like the promise in the PSALM.

And We remember: The Injured and the Hurt...May all their wounds mend ...Their Spirit is unending...Champions to the end!

And we’ll remember YOU Dear HUMBOLDT...and Your “Hockey Playing SONS”...Keeping our ‘Sticks on the Ice’... for a town in Saskatchewan!

“...Sticks Out For The BRONCOS”...Play on...Play on !!!
