It is the same team that Ed Tobin, the father of Humboldt Broncos victim Parker Tobin, played for in the late 1970s and took to the provincial championship when he was growing up in the eastern Newfoundland town.

Students at Thomas Haney secondary have raised more than $1,200 for the Humboldt Broncos, the hockey team involved in a horrific crash in Saskatchewan last week.

Fifteen people on the team bus died with others critically injured.

All three teams in the Grade-8-to-12 academy came to school wearing their academy jerseys, joining many other students and staff across the district who wore hockey jerseys of all kinds.

The family of Dayna Brons, 25, announced that she had "passed away peacefully" in a Saskatoon hospital.

An official with the Broncos issued a statement asking the media not to attend the funeral service.

Demmans said when the Broncos needed a new trainer, he suggested Brons and she joined them past year.

The team was on its way to Game 5 of a semi-final against the Nipawin Hawks, also in Saskatchewan, when the crash occurred around 5 pm Friday.

"We get on the bus for 30 games a season and you don't really think about it", Keca said. One woman, standing under the Canadian, provincial and Bay Roberts flags at half mast just down the road from the school, said she was especially struck when she saw Parker Tobin's picture - he looked just like his uncle as a kid.

Brons, who was from Lake Lenore, Sask., suffered serious head trauma and had undergone two surgeries.

Her family said she will be remembered for her smile and her love of sports.

Barclay Dahlstrom, an instructor at the university, described her as a "bright student with a wonderful time and a kind heart". "She was surrounded by those she loved and those who loved her".

Parker's first win with the Alberta Junior Hockey League was in his hometown as goaltender for Drayton Valley.

People in Canada and the United States, including sport medicine professionals and athletes, honored Brons on Wednesday with small tributes.

"The important thing you can do, as Logan did, is talk to your family and let them know what your wishes are".

They placed athletic wraps and tape, along ice packs and hockey sticks on their porches.
