Meanwhile, the first of the crash victims will be laid to rest Thursday.

Riemer said counselling is available for those at the U of R who need it, adding the school has responded to the tragedy by allowing students the time they need, particularly given this is exam time.

There were plenty of Leaf jerseys, of course, including on worn by Suleimaan Omar.

"Definitely, she was one of the team", he said.

"It's safe to say that the fund for the Humboldt Broncos is one of our fastest growing campaigns in history", GoFundMe spokesperson Rachel Hollis wrote in an email to CTV News. "You just don't get over it". "These guys play sports they travel, it could be anyone and that thought alone is something that really hit home", said Sternberg.

"It's very close to home for anybody who's in sports", he said.

"I can't believe it happened again".

"Some of our kids are the same age as the players that would have passed in this tragedy and they've been on buses their whole lives right from novice on". But Hurst's donation has a direct hockey connection: last weekend he auctioned off a mounted arena seat from the old Boston Garden, a piece he had planned to display in his soon-to-open collectibles shop, Bear's Den Trading Post in Coombs. He points out they had a young man from the community away all winter playing with the Campbellton Tigers.

The symbolic gesture has picked up steam and now people from around the world are sharing photos of their jerseys on social media under the hashtag #jerseysforhumboldt.

Before joining the Broncos, she worked for a few junior league lacrosse and soccer teams, according to CNN partner CBC.

"I wish I could bring those people back, but I can't", he said.

"I can not imagine the pain her parents and friends are experiencing in having those dreams cut short", he said. "If I were to get on a bus, and to lose all your teammates and family like that it would be tragic".

"I hope to send the message that even though they are not with us anymore that they will live and everyone is thinking of them".

"It's nice that hockey stretches out so far".
