One member of the Humboldt Broncos who was injured after the bus crash that killed 16 is planning to get back on the ice to continue his hockey career.
20-year-old Kaleb Dahlgren from Saskatoon has committed to play university hockey for the York Lions. That is the school that Broncos assistant coach Mark Cross went to. Cross was one of the 16 who lost their lives last month when the bus the Broncos were in collided with a tractor-trailer unit at an intersection while the team was en route to a playoff game in Nipawin
“My goal is to attend York in the fall of this year,” he said Friday in a statement on Twitter. “However, the school has assured me I can begin whenever my body is ready.”
