Humboldt Broncos to play emotional home opener

It will be an emotional night as the Humboldt Broncos play their home opener.

During tonight's sold out game the Broncos will take on the Nipawin Hawks - the same team they were scheduled to face when the team's bus was involved in a horrific crash that claimed the lives of sixteen people and injured another thirteen.

Two of the survivors of the crash, Brayden Camrud and Derek Patter, are back on the team this season.

On Friday the team will travel by bus to Nipawin for a rematch.
