The Jets, Blackhawks and NHL will each donate $25,000. All proceeds from the 50/50 draw will be donated to the Broncos.
The Jets and Blackhawks, along with the NHL, will honor the Humboldt Broncos hockey team Saturday in Winnipeg, Canada, a day after the horrific bus crash on Friday night in Saskatchewan, Canada.
The accident left 15 dead, including the head coach and team captain, along with injuring 14 others.
There will be a moment of silence before the game, and the two teams will wear the word "Broncos" on the back of their jerseys in place of individual names. The gesture is meant to "symbolize the unity and support of our hockey communities coming together as one for the Humboldt Broncos' family," according to the Jets press release.

As the extent of the crash has become clear, condolences have poured in from across the NHL.
