Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash Survivor Signs With College Team After Recovery

Kaleb Dahlgren commits to play for Toronto's York University after his recovery.

One of the survivors of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus crash plans to continue his hockey career and play for York University in Toronto, according to Sportsnet.

Dahlgren, 20, hopes to start college in the fall, but it will depend on his recovery. The university said he can start whenever he feels ready.

Dahlgren's injuries include six broken vertebrae in his neck and back, a fractured skull, a brain injury and a puncture wound in his head. He is one of 13 survivors who were injured in the crash.

On April 6, a semi-trailer crashed into the bus of the Canadian junior hockey team in Saskatchewan. 16 of the 29 people on the bus died, including coach Mark Cross who played for York University from 2011-2016.
