New-Look Broncos Make the Playoffs
The rebuilt Humboldt Broncos hockey team is headed to the post-season.
The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team was devastated after its bus and a transport truck collided at a rural intersection almost a year ago.
16 people, including 10 players, were killed and 13 players were injured.
Two surviving players returned this season, but the rest of the team was essentially built from scratch after a May training camp and the Broncos finished sixth out of 12 teams with 35 wins in 58 games and 74 points.
