Nelsonites join in on Jersey Day for Humboldt Broncos

Nelsonites join in on Jersey Day for Humboldt Broncos

Humboldt Broncos athletic therapist Dayna Brons has died of injuries she sustained in Friday's crash.

"Dayna's family would like to thank the first responders, emergency staff, and all those who have cared for Dayna over these last few days for their support", said a statement from the family. "And, they would like to thank everyone across Saskatchewan and Canada for their love and prayers during this very hard time", the statement read.

Sixteen passengers, including players, coaches, team staff and the bus driver, died in the crash while 13 others were injured.

The bus was headed for a playoff game in Nipawin last Friday when it collided with a semi-trailer at a rural intersection north of Tisdale.




"I think there was hope for everyone but the injuries on that accident were significant for everyone".

"I have grown up watching the team and I've got a place to stay there so no problem at all for me to come back home", she said in an interview with a local radio station about her joining the team. They dreamed of winning their league's championship and she helped them get ready. So did Canadian women's hockey Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser. "They are also requesting everyone using social media networks to respect their privacy as well".

"'The only girl on the boys team'. Although she was a quiet and soft-spoken presence, she was able to light up a room", said Racquel Marshall, one of Brons' former classmates. She also received an advanced certificate in athletic therapy from Mount Royal University.

She joined the Broncos in 2016, according to media reports.
