Hockey teams paid tribute to the Humboldt Broncos on Saturday, one year after the team's fatal bus crash.
The hockey world paid tribute to the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash on Saturday on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy.
On April 6, 2018, the junior hockey team's bus collided with a transport truck in Saskatchewan, Canada, killing 16 people and injuring another 13. The Broncos were traveling to a playoff game to face the Nipawin Hawks. News of the accident made international headlines and tributes quickly poured in around the world.
One year later, hockey teams and others posted tributes on social media to honor the Broncos.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also paid tribute to the hockey team.

Canadians are with you, and we will always be cheering you on. https://t.co/GUwsvMEzhq— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) April 6, 2019
