Humboldt Broncos Junior A Hockey Team will return for 2018-19 SJHL season

May 11, 2018 – Humboldt, SK – Today the Humboldt Broncos Hockey Club is announcing that their Junior A team will be ready to hit the ice for the 2018-19 SJHL season. There remains much to do to rebuild the team, therefore steps are now being taken to slowly return the club to routine hockey operations. This week the process will begin to recruit a head coach and general manager.

“Darcy Haugan was selfless, inspirational and motivating, building up his players to be great ambassadors and role models both on the ice and in the community.” said Humboldt Broncos president Kevin Garinger. “He was the coach every player wanted, and that other coaches wanted to emulate.”

“As a general manager, Darcy made smart decisions and was driven to ensure the Broncos organization succeeded in every aspect of its operations,” continued Garinger. “He took our team to new heights – it will be incredibly difficult to find someone that can rise to his standards.”

An announcement will be made once new coaching staff is established.

Coinciding with the head coach recruitment process, the Humboldt Broncos will welcome 80 prospective players to attend an invite-only camp from May 25-27, 2018 in Saskatoon. This camp will not be open to the public or to media.

Season tickets for the Humboldt Broncos 2018-19 season will soon go on sale. While demand is expected to be high, every effort will be made to ensure that 2017-18 season ticket holders receive first right of refusal on their seats. Residents are encouraged to watch for more details in their local newspaper and listen for updates on local radio on season ticket sales in the coming days and weeks.

The Humboldt Broncos remain committed to supporting everyone who has been impacted by the tragic event of April 6, 2018. Together we will move forward, #HumboldtStrong.

Statement from Humboldt Broncos’ President Kevin Garinger

Statement from Humboldt Broncos President Kevin Garinger

On Friday, April 6, 2018, the Humboldt Broncos’ organization was brought to its knees by an unimaginable tragedy. Over the past ten days, an overwhelming wave of financial support has poured in for our club and its families.

First and foremost, the Broncos’ volunteer board of directors would like to express their tremendous love and sincere gratitude to everyone who has generously donated time and money to support our organization and its families, as we navigate through this dark and heart-wrenching time.

The strain on the Broncos’ organization’s limited resources has been immense. Our priority currently remains focused – as it has been since day one – on working with our families, especially now as they lay their loved ones to rest, as well as on all our families and players struggling to heal, physically and mentally, in the wake of this devastating event.

Today, I would like to provide you with an update on how the Broncos’ organization plans to manage and disperse the financial support we have received.

The Humboldt Broncos wish to reiterate their gratitude to Humboldt resident Sylvie Kellington, for her quick thinking in creating such an extraordinary way to help our club and its families, through the use of a GoFundMe online fundraising campaign.

Going forward, the Broncos’ board of directors, in tandem with their legal counsel, MLT Aikins, and executives at GoFundMe.com head office, have determined that the Humboldt Broncos GoFundMe campaign will remain open for two more days to allow for any additional online donations and will then be closed and taken offline on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 11:59 pm MST.

The funds donated through the GoFundMe campaign will be transferred to a newly created non-profit corporation known as “Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc.” to be allocated for their intended purpose. An advisory committee is being established to make a recommendation for the allocation of these funds, which will be held in trust until that allocation occurs. Once we have formalized the composition of this committee, we will provide you with an update.

The Broncos have been humbled, and our spirits buoyed, by the staggering number of individuals and groups wanting to make donations, or holding fundraisers to support our organization, as we deal with this unprecedented crisis. In order to accommodate these incoming funds, the Humboldt Broncos, together with legal counsel Robertson Stromberg, have launched the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation.

The mission of the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation will be to support Humboldt Broncos’ players, employees, families, and volunteers, as well as first responders and emergency services personnel, teams, athletes, related organizations and communities affected by the crash of the Humboldt Broncos team bus on April 6, 2018, and the aftermath thereof.

Please note that only fundraisers, benefits or initiatives directing proceeds to the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation will be considered as endorsed, sanctioned by or held in conjunction with the Humboldt Broncos organization.

The Broncos cannot, and will not, be able to verify the legitimacy of any other event or the disbursal of funds raised by other such events.
