About it reports CNN with reference to the canadian law enforcement authorities.

There were 29 people on the team's bus when the crash happened around 17:00 local time (23:00 GMT) on Friday.

The cause of the crash could not be immediately confirmed, however, and police said nothing about the identity of the dead or condition of the truck driver. Initially, police reported 14 fatalities.

Fourteen people were injured in the crash, including two critically.

"We're devastated", said hockey club Vice President Randolph MacLEAN. "We will never forget the members of our Broncos family who were taken from us and who were injured".

The others killed include the junior hockey team's captain Logan Schatz, defenceman Stephen Wack and forwards Jaxon Joseph and Logan Hunter.

Bieber worked for Humboldt radio station CHBO and often travelled with the team as its play-by-play radio announcer.

Darren Opp, president of the Nipawin Hawks, said a semi T-boned the players' bus - an account police confirmed.

Norman Mattock, a longtime season ticket holder, said his neighbor housed player Morgan Gobeil.

Before becoming a coach, he played junior hockey in the league in the 1990s. Chow said, pausing for several seconds as he began to cry.

"Every day hockey teams, players, scouts and parents are on the road heading to arenas everywhere, so this impacts everyone and these young men and the Humboldt Broncos will be forever remembered", Dan Marr, the director of NHL Central Scouting, told NHL.com.

The Broncos play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, an under-20 youth league that regularly produces NHL players.

"Humboldt is no exception, and today the country and the entire hockey community stands with you". Some appeared dazed, some with eyes red from crying.

"Whoever had the chance to know him just knows how great of a person he was, his personality".

He said players become part of the community fabric, doing volunteer work or serving in restaurants.

Members of the National Hockey League expressed sadness over the news. Many people wandered in and out of the arena during the morning.

Bill Chow, the president of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League said, "I don't have a lot to say other than-". "There is no playbook on what to do in cases like this".

Michelle Straschnitzki, who lives in Airdrie, said her 18-year old son Ryan was transported to a hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Words cannot describe the loss that we feel tonight. "I am freaking out".

"He liked sports, but at times I think he tolerated sports so he could be a teammate", said Thomas.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also sent his condolences on Twitter to the families of those killed and injured in the accident. The Broncos had been on their way to Nipawin for a playoff game when the crash happened.

Assistant coach Chris Beaudry was driving his own vehicle to the game the night of the crash.

Less than 17 hours after it was launched, a GoFundMe account organized to raise funds for the victims and families of the junior hockey team has received in excess of $1 million in donations from almost 17,000 contributors.

On a trip to SC as a young player, part of a team bus caught fire.

The victim's families were directed to Nipawin Apostolic Church for information and support. Our thoughts and our prayers and our hearts go out to those families. "It hits the hockey world hard, but I said, 'We're playing for the love of the game.' I'm sure those families, kids, they were playing for the same reason". "I've got 50 phone calls at least saying 'what do you want?'" "There's uncles and moms and dads waiting to hear whether their sons and nephews are OK". "It's bad. It's absolutely awful".

For some, the tragedy revived painful memories of a bus crash in the province in December 1986 that killed four young players from the Swift Current Broncos ice hockey team.
