The names and numbers of those killed and injured last spring in the Humboldt Broncos’ bus crash have been raised to the rafters of the Elgar Petersen Arena in Saskatchewan. Teary-eyed family members and fans cheered as 29 yellow and green flags were unfurled last night, honouring the 13 injured and remembering the 16 dead at the team’s first regular season game since the tragedy. The Broncos came up short in their home opener, losing 2-1 to the Nipawin Hawks — the same team the Broncos were travelling to face when the crash happened. The Broncos will board a bus on Friday for a rematch in Nipawin.
