Six Humboldt Broncos players remain at RUH, two still in critical condition

Six people injured in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash almost two weeks ago remained in hospital Thursday, with two of the six still in critical condition.

Ten Broncos players died, as well as the coach, assistant coach, athletic therapist, the team's volunteer statistician, a play-by-play announcer and the bus driver.

Almost two weeks after Ryan Straschnitzki and the rest of his Humboldt Broncos hockey team were involved in a devastating, deadly crash on a rural Saskatchewan highway, the Airdrie native will be continuing his recovery at home in Alberta.

Since the April 6 bus crash there have been tributes by teams and visits to survivors, in addition to letters penned by National Hockey League players to those that remain hospitalized.

Twenty-nine people were on the junior hockey team's bus when it collided with a semi-trailer involved in the crash at a rural Saskatchewan intersection earlier this month.

The GoFundMe campaign was started by Humboldt, Sask. resident Sylvie Kellington.

"As much as the financial pressure has been huge, we are incredibly fortunate to receive funds to support our organization, but most importantly, our Broncos families", Garinger said.

Team president Kevin Garinger explained last week that the funds will go into the newly created Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc.

The money will be will be allocated "for (its) intended objective".

An advisory committee is also being established to make a recommendation for the allocation of the funds, which will be held in a trust in the meantime.

The initial goal was four million dollars to support the survivors of the crash, and the families of the 16 members of the team who were killed.

"It really hit me when I first heard about it".

Troy Vollhoffer of Country Thunder, who is organizing the concert, told the CBC that all proceeds from the event will be donated to the families of the victims. The numbers indicate three people have been released from hospital since an update released by the SHA on Tuesday.

Six people remained in hospital as of 2:15 p.m. Thursday, two of them in critical condition, the Saskatchewan Health Authority said in an update on patient condition.
