Sports Illustrated features THE LOGAN EFFECT. From the depths of tragedy—a bus crash in Saskatchewan that took the lives of 16 Humboldt Broncos last April—the grieving family of Logan Boulet finds comfort in knowing their loss has led to a movement of selflessness and generosity.

POSTPONED - Humboldt Broncos Alumni take on Hockey Legends
On Saturday March 9 at 3pm, the Alumni Association will ice a team to take on the NHL Legends. The Rink of Dreams event will be at the Elgar Petersen Arena in Humboldt. The game is the centrepiece of a weekend celebration of hockey in Humboldt. First things first: we need to recruit a team! Do you want to wear the green and gold one more time?
The game is the centrepiece of a weekend celebration of hockey in Humboldt, along with a Celebrity Sportsman Dinner in support of the Humboldt Broncos and Humboldt Minor Hockey Association. Team members must be former Humboldt Broncos players, from any era – we hope to ice a team that represents 48 years of hockey. You must also join the Alumni Association to be eligible to play – this is a great opener for the Association.
If you want to play on March 9, send an email asap. Subject line is “I want to play, coach.”
Include the year(s) you played for the Broncos, your position, and where you live now. We want to ice as many players as possible, and the roster will be limited. The Alumni Association’s event committee will select the team.
If you are not playing: we need you in the stands! Get your friends, teammates, and family together, and come support the team (or cheer for the NHL Legends if you must). Rekindle relationships and have a blast. Game tickets are on sale beginning Wednesday, January 23 at www.humboldtbroncos.com.
If you’re up for more: join us at the Celebrity Sportsman Dinner. Share laughs and stories, help the Broncos raise some money, and have dinner with Bryan Trottier! Dinner tickets are on sale at www.humboldtbroncos.com.
We’ve been asked to come back to Humboldt, where we all grew up, and be part of these events. However you participate, we hope to meet you there.
Jamie is now in the Saskatoon Royal University Hospital preparing to undergo a new chemotherapy mix aimed to drive the cancer into remission and enable him to undergo a stem cell infusion. Jamie’s parents have been selected as his nearest match, at 50%, and will be the donors for this infusion. Jamie has been told finding a 100% match will be difficult given his rare stem cell type.
All of Jamie’s family and friends are working hard to raise awareness of the importance of becoming a stem cell donor in support of Jamie and all those who find themselves undergoing these same battles of trying to find a perfect match.
On behalf of Jamie, his immediate and extended family, and all his many friends – we sincerely thank Hockey Gives Blood for raising awareness for Jamie, his wife Cyndi and their three children.
The Humboldt Bronco Alumni Association is pleased to report that in conjunction with the Season Home Opener of the Humboldt Broncos 2018-19 Season that the 1972-73 SAJHL Championship Humboldt Broncos hosted a 45 Year Reunion on September 11, 2018 in Humboldt.
The 1972-73 Broncos finished the season behind the Prince Albert Raiders in the final standings but after taking out the Melville Millionaires in the first round they took out their nemesis to the north in the second round and then hoisted the SAJHL championship trophy in Humboldt taking out the Estevan Bruins in the championship final.
The 1972-73 Broncos took on the Portage La Prairie Terriers in one of the most physical and violent junior hockey series ever. Consequently the Broncos withdrew from the series.
The Broncos were lead by Terry “Doc” Henning as Coach, Lee Tost as Assistant Coach and the late Dr. Gerry Rooney as General Manager with of course the young, and always smiling Elgar Peterson.
The HBAA welcomed the following team members back to Humboldt.

The Humboldt Broncos Alumni Association extends their heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the Gaspers' family during this very difficult time. The Bronco Family stands with you. Please lean on us for support.
Humbolt Broncos Alumni Association
The Alumni Association is an autonomous entity, independent of the Humboldt Broncos, though the two will enjoy a symbiotic relationship. Its intent will be to support initiatives that build on Broncos' hockey excellence in its commitment to its players, team and community, with more specific details to be disclosed in due course. Funds raised by the HBAA will be independently managed by a board of directors comprised of representatives from the Alumni Association, the Humboldt Broncos, independent directors, and representatives from the community of Humboldt.
“The Humboldt Broncos Alumni Association is honored and excited to be working with the Bronco organization, former Broncos and the community of Humboldt,” said Bob Bachynski, managing director of the HBAA. “We believe its inception will further solidify the special bond we all have as part of the Bronco family.”
“The Humboldt Broncos are looking forward to working with the Humboldt Broncos Alumni Association with our aligned vision and goals,” said Kevin Garinger, president of the Humboldt Broncos. “Our club’s endorsement of this organization recognizes the lifelong relationships formed by Broncos players and supporters, many of which have been rekindled in light of the recent tragedy impacting our club.”
The HBAA wants as many former Broncos as possible to play a major role in the long-term support of their alma mater. Therefore, all former players, coaches, staff, and board members are invited to participate and play a vital role in its long-term facilitation.
