Humboldt banner

A new banner can be seen hanging from the rafters of the Ice For Kids Arena this season. The Fort Frances Lakers held a special pre-game ceremony ahead of their SIJHL home-opener Friday night in which they honoured the Humboldt Broncos, a junior ‘A’ team that plays in the SJHL who were involved in a horrific bus crash back on April 6 that claimed the lives of 16 team members while injuring another 13. Each of the CJHL’s 133-member clubs were to host their own special ceremony prior to their home-openers this season to honour the Broncos. The banner, designed by Tyler Hutchinson of Moose Jaw, Sask., is in honour and remembrance of all those involved in the tragedy.
