You break out a deck of cards, maybe watch a DVD, or toss on your headphones and press play on your favorite playlist and hunker down with the almost two dozen teammates, more so brothers, for what will feel like countless hours.

The Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks honoured the Humboldt team by wearing jerseys with the word BRONCOS across their name plates during their regular-season finale on Saturday night. It was through the advice of a coach at Trinity Western, Haugan scouted Bogress and convinced him to bring his career to the small hockey insane town of just under 6,000 people. More business donations are being secured from other co-ops, according to the league, and FCL will continue to match them, up to a potential total of $500,000. "He said to me, I'm not going to quit, I'm not going to stop, I'm going to be like water". The campaign for the family of the deceased head coach Darcy Haugan is above $48,000, the one for assistant coach Mark Cross is above $1,500, and that for injured player Ryan Straschnitzki is above $7,000.

A player McNaughton was initially concerned for turned out to have been recently traded from the team.

"You know the story now", MacLean said. He says it was a typical team atmosphere for those road trips with "guys watching movies and just trying to get comfortable". They also said they "hope the focus will remain on those grieving and those recovering, not the confusion in an unimaginable tragedy". Redlick suggested while he is coach, no other player will wear their number.
