Saskatchewan’s own Brian Munz has started a trend over twitter to honour those who died in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
Munz, who actually graduated from high school in Humboldt, tweeted a picture of a Hockey stick sitting outside of his door, saying that those who died “might need them, wherever they are.”
Munz says it was to show support to the families of those who died.
“It’s obviously to hopefully let the parents of the players, and the families members of the staff know that the whole hockey world and everybody across North America right now is thinking about them.”
Munz says he didn’t think the movement would gain so much traction.
“It was really kind of an innocent thing, I was watching the vigil (Sunday night) here at home in Winnipeg, and actually a good friend of mine that I went to High School with that lives here in Winnipeg as well, tweeted me the picture,” Munz says. “It just kind of struck a chord with the timing of everything, and I thought ‘you know what, that’s an initiative’.”
Outside of the Saskatchewan Legislature sits two hockey sticks, and Premier Scott Moe`s office has a hockey stick sitting outside the door as well.
