A number of NHL teams in action Saturday night paid tribute to the victims of the bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus.

The Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks wore the name ‘BRONCOS’ on their jerseys instead of their own team nameplates at MTS Centre.

“In hockey, we’ve learned that you don’t play for the name on the back of the jersey. You play for the crest on the front,” said the stadium announcer at MTS Centre, before asking the players and audience to observe a moment of silence.

“Tonight, the Winnipeg Jets and the Chicago Blackhawks, together with the entire National Hockey League, are playing this game for the names on the back of our jerseys, the Humboldt Broncos.”
