Two people involved in the Humboldt bus crash have direct ties to the Fort Saskatchewan hockey world.
 
Sixteen people died after the Humboldt Broncos team bus was involved in a collision with a semi-truck on Apr.6 in Saskatchewan.
 
Humboldt Broncos' head coach Darcy Haugan and defenceman Stephen Wack both played hockey in the Fort.
 
Haugan spent the 1992-94 seasons with the Fort Saskatchewan Traders before continuing to play college hockey and professionally in Sweden.
 
Wack spent the 2013-14 season as a part of the Fort Saskatchewan Midget AAA Rangers before leaving to the AJHL's Camrose Kodiaks.
 
A bottle drive for the players and their families is this weekend in the Fort. More details are here.
