The bus the team was traveling in reportedly collided with a semi-truck on Highway 35 in Tisdale, Saskatchewan, at 5 p.m., resulting in 14 deaths and injuring 14 others, including three critically.

The president of the junior hockey team involved in a fatal crash in northeastern Saskatchewan said parents from across Western Canada are rushing to the scene as they struggle to cope with the tragedy.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted his support for Humboldt.

Neufeld said Joseph was a forward on the team, and he was originally from Edmonton. That community and the other small communities around Saskatchewan, they live for hockey, and they drive that team and players love living there, and I speak from experience.

Victims' families, friends, and supporters of the team gathered at the Nipawin Apostolic Church hall for information and support.

"Every Swift Current minor hockey team, and we did as well, we play with the clover with the four numbers on it (on our jerseys)".

"Lots of them are waiting for information", he said.

The STARS Air Ambulance service said two of its helicopters flew to the scene.

"Sending all my thoughts and prayers to those impacted with the @HumboltBroncos bus crash", Kennedy wrote Friday night.

The Swift Current Broncos also shared their condolences.

"Humboldt Broncos weighing heavy in our hearts and minds tonight", the team said on Twitter.

"From a grieving province, thank you to every one of the first responders and medical professionals for your courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

"I received a text about the crash early this morning, " Giles said.

Humboldt players range in age from 16 to 21, according to an online team roster.

"Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy".
