Former Nitehawk player one of the players killed in Saskatchewan bus crash

 Residents of  Humboldt, Saskatchewan grieved in their hockey arena, laying flowers around centre ice where the puck would have dropped last night to open a scheduled playoff game.

     Instead, the town and many visitors are mourning the deaths of 15 people who were on the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team's bus when it collided with a transport truck Friday night.

     The 14 others on the bus were injured, some critically. Donations for the crash survivors and the families of the dead have now surpassed 4.6-million dollars.

One of the players killed in the collision was a former Beaver Valley Nitehawk.

20 year old Jaxon Joseph, played 35 games with the Nitehawks during the 2015/2016 season.

He's also the son of former NHL player Chris Joseph, 

The City of Trail  has the bridge lights coloured yellow and green this week, to show support for Humboldt.
