OHL community comes together in support of Humboldt
Since the tragic accident on April 6 that claimed the lives of 16 members of the Humboldt Broncos family, the entire hockey community has rallied together to express their love and support on social media.
Below is a collection of posts from across the Ontario Hockey League in honour of the Humboldt Broncos with phrases such as #PrayersForHumboldt and #HumboldtStrong that have been used worldwide out of remembrance and respect in addition to the #PutYourSticksOut and #JerseysForHumboldt social media trends that brought the nation together in their name.

No words can describe the bonds that are created from junior hockey between teammates, families, and especially billet families. This piece from my second Mom speaks to that. Humboldt, the entire hockey community is here for you in the horrific time. #humboldtstong ?? https://t.co/V3ilY0QURB
