Hockey is family and the Unionville Minor Hockey Association, along with hockey communities across Canada and the World, are heart-broken for the families and the communities affected by the horrific tragedy that took the lives of 15 people this past weekend.  We extend our deepest condolences to the Broncos organization and to all the families and friends of the Humboldt community.

A GO FUND ME page has been set up to assist in raising money for the players and families affected. Money will go directly to families to help with any expenses incurred. Please click here if you wish to donate.

A vigil was organized by the City of Markham on Wednesday April 11 to remember and show support for the players, the families and the hockey community in Humboldt.
