"It's just one of those things that you just fear would never happen to you or anyone", he said.

"It just hits so close to home".

"There's some strong parallels between Humboldt and our community in terms of closeness and togetherness and hockey bringing them together etc.", he said. "We felt that one way we could try and reach out and support the people in our communities was by giving them an opportunity to express their grief".
