A steady stream of well-wishers came to CN Centre today to sign  a banner for Humboldt, as well a sympathy banner former Cougars captain Brock Hirsche.

Fifteen people, all affiliated with the Humbolt Broncos, were killed a bus accident in Saskatchewan last week. Hirsche passed away from cancer on the weekend.

Everyone is invited to come to the CN Centre Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m, to sign banners to both Humboldt as well as Brock Hirsche’s family.

The Cougars are reaching out to everyone in our community that is involved in any way with hockey:  coaches, players, officials, fans, parents, friends and relatives.  This Thursday at 6 p.m. at the CN Centre, the club will be organizing a group picture of everyone on the ice, which it will send to the City of Humboldt as a gesture of solidarity, sympathy, and support. Everyone is encouraged to wear hockey jerseys and bring signs.  Additionally, they want to send the picture to the Hirsche family, as a showing of support.
