Ten Humboldt Broncos bus crash survivors meet in Las Vegas for NHL awards

Ten of the 13 survivors from the Humboldt Broncos bus crash are in Las Vegas this week to attend the NHL awards.

HUMBOLDT, Sask. — Ten of the 13 survivors from the Humboldt Broncos bus crash are in Las Vegas this week to attend the NHL awards.

Some of the players who boarded flights in Saskatoon Monday said it will be emotional, but great to see their teammates.

The NHL says it will honour the Broncos during Wednesday's awards ceremony.

The players are also hoping that their head coach, Darcy Haugan, will be the recipient of the inaugural Willie O'Ree Community Hero Award.

It recognizes someone who, through the game of hockey, has improved their community, culture or society.

Haugan was one of 16 people killed after the team's bus and a semi-trailer collided in rural Saskatchewan on April 6.

Thirteen people survived the crash, but the other three are not able to attend.
