The hockey stick campaign spread over social media, starting with TSN announcer Brian Munz and expanding under the hashtag #PutYourSticksOut.

The team played their games with a heavy heart after learning about the Humboldt Broncos and paid tribute to the team.

And now, in homage, photos of sticks lined up outside people's homes keep trending with the hashtags #PutYourStickOut and #HumboldtStrong. The tweet was shared more than 6,000 times, and by Monday, the terms were trending on Twitter in Boston as more and more people joined the cause.

A GoFundMe account raising money for the victims' families of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash that killed 15 people and injured 14 others is setting records.

"We greatly appreciate everything everyone did to help on Friday night, " says Councillor Gary Jones. "She was always just such a pleasure and so happy and smiling the whole time whenever she was at the rink, and you could tell she truly loved what she did". "It's kind of this bonding experience, in a way". "All I can do is offer our sincerest apologies, our sincerest condolences and sympathies, in particular to the Tobin family on the news that they would have received".

"I don't think enough can ever be said".

That's why Humboldt's unimaginable pain hurts us all across the hockey community, too. "I pray that Humboldt knows that the whole world is behind them, and that we are all grieving with them".

The entire nation is mourning this incredible tragedy, particularly so in rural regions where hockey has perhaps its deepest roots.

There have been moments of silence at games, vigils, and fundraisers. I'm incredibly thankful to be a part of such a supportive community. His boy, he said, made sure they left the porch light on all night in order to illuminate the piece of equipment. "I can't imagine putting myself in those families' shoes to first get the notice that one has been in the collision of this nature, and then to find out who they thought was their loved one wasn't, potentially, actually their loved one".

It is tragedies like this that remind us all of how much we have in common with people we have never met, so much more than those differences that sometimes divide us.

National and global support poured out for the families and community affected by the crash. "I mean, myself, I coach, my kids play both lacrosse and hockey, I've played hockey my whole life".

"You don't think these things are going to happen", she said.

Around 5 p.m. on Friday, one of these bus rides, humdrum as they are in the most flawless of ways, went terribly, terribly wrong.
