"He was a very good goalie, especially to make goaltending for the Spruce Grove Saints", he said. Although the tragedy shows the hockey community is a tight-knit one, Keca said it is more than that. "She was surrounded by those she loved and those who loved her", the statement reads, as reported by CTV.

The campaign has been organised by Sylvie Kellington, a resident of the city saskatchewanaise whose son has already played with the Broncos at a lower level.

An online fundraising campaign has since been set up to help to players and families affected. "As hockey families we are here for you!" reads the Facebook page created for the event.

Victims aboard the bus included 10 players, the driver, two coaches, a volunteer statistician and a broadcaster.

"I hope to send the message that even though they are not with us anymore that they will live and everyone is thinking of them".

"Sending all my thoughts and prayers to those impacted with the @HumboltBroncos bus crash".

West Shore resident Rod Hurst is one of almost 100,000 people who have donated or plan to donate to the fund, which as of late Tuesday was closing in on the $8 million mark. "Tonight, we must all pray for these families".

The collision took place Friday around 5 p.m. on Highway 35 about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale as the Broncos travelled to Nipawin from Humboldt in a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) semifinal series against the Nipawin Hawks.
