Last Friday, a Canadian town that lives for hockey was shaken when a bus of teenage athletes collided with a tractor-trailer, killing 16 and injuring 14.

Members of the Paramus Catholic Hockey Team are donning Paladins jerseys on Thursday, April 12, in solidarity with the Humboldt Broncos who lost their lives and those still fighting.

"We’ve all traveled on buses as a team and it’s a bonding experience," Head Coach Keith Bland said.

"As an organization we chose to wear our shirts to support them in any way we could."

"This hit hard," school employee and team mom Mary Garofalo Pitera said. "We all have heavy hearts."
