WATCH | Tom Cochrane pays tribute to Humboldt hockey team with "Big League"

Not many can get through the video without tearing up.

Canada's Juno Award-winning signer and songwriter Tom Cochrane reworked the lyrics of his song "Big League" last night for a special performance paying tribute to the Humboldt Broncos.

The 64 year old played an acoustic version in front of a green and yellow backdrop to begin TSN's NHL playoff preview special.

The song, originally featured on his 1988 album "Victory Day" with Red Rider, is written from the perspective of a father whose son was a hockey player with big dreams cut short by a truck driving in the wrong lane.

Many Canadians began associating the lyrics with the 15 people who were killed in a highway accident on Friday night when the Humboldt Broncos' bus collided with a semi-trailer in northern Saskatchewan.

Fourteen other people were injured.
