"It's too early to comment on the cause of the collision", Zablocki said.

The bus, which was going north, was ferrying the team to a game in Nipawin at the time of the accident. The teams played a lengthy game Wednesday that Nipawin won 6-5 in three overtimes in Humboldt, leaving Nipawin with a 3-1 series lead.

Condolences poured in from current and former hockey players, sports organizations and political leaders.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said: "To the City of Humboldt, the entire Broncos organisation, and the families impacted by this tragedy, please know you are in Saskatchewan's hearts".

Wilson said he filled in a few times for Bieber because he was also busy coaching the Humboldt high school's basketball and football teams. "We're devastated", said hockey club Vice President Randolph MacLEAN. "Again that connection that all hockey players have together, they go through that idea of travelling as a team, being part of a team". Thirteen of the Humboldt Broncos players are from Saskatchewan, 10 are from Alberta, and one is from Manitoba. "The entire province of Alberta stands with you at this awful time".

"Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy", Kevin Garinger, the team's president, said in a statement.

In Humboldt, people showed up at the Elgar Petersen Arena to offer support, according to CNN partner CBC.

As is the case with small town hockey across Canada, he said, the arena is not just a recreation facility, but a focus of community life with the hockey team at its center. You come to the rink ... what's better than that? "I just can't wrap my head around it".

The RCMP said 15 people have been killed, and 28 on board the bus, adding it is not confirming any victims' identities yet, to "ensure families are notified as soon as possible and the appropriate supports are provided".

Expressions of sympathy poured in from around the globe.


"We know that the way we're going to get through this is by leaning on each other", Garinger said.

In a post on Twitter, U.S. President Donald Trump said he had spoken with Trudeau "to pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the bad Humboldt Team tragedy".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to attend "to pay his respects and mourn the loss of the players and officials of the Humboldt Broncos".

The Humboldt Broncos team, which has members aged between 16 and 21, were en route to a play-off game when their bus collided with a lorry on a rural road. "May God be with them all!" the president tweeted.

"We send condolence, comfort and strength to all affected by the devastating crash involving the Humboldt Broncos' team bus", the National Hockey League said on Twitter. "It is sort of every parent's worst nightmare", he said.

Friday's crash is not the first highway accident to kill hockey players in Saskatchewan. A memorial to those players was erected at the crash site in 2016.

He said players become part of the community fabric, doing volunteer work or serving in restaurants.

"Brody had recently joined our Golden West family, mentored by Tyler and the Bolt FM team", Lydon Frieson, president of Golden West Radio, said in a statement posted on the station's website. Crisis support workers gathered to assist families.

Muench said it will take a long time for Humboldt to recover.
