PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Penguins have announced they will be wearing Humboldt Broncos decals on their helmets during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The team will wear the decals for both home and away games to honor the victims killed or injured in a bus crash.
Penguins equipment manager Dana Heinze posted this photo on Twitter.
The Canadian junior hockey team was heading to a playoff game when the bus was hit by a tractor-trailer.
Fifteen people were killed.
Ten of those killed were players for the Humboldt Broncos, five others including the bus driver, two coaches, a volunteer statistician and a broadcaster were also killed.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation. Canadian officials are reviewing the intersection where the accident happened.
Twelve survivors are still in the hospital, four of them in critical condition.
Yesterday the Penguins announced that captain Sidney Crosby had a special Pens jersey made for the team. The entire team signed it.
Posts are flooding social media of people leaving hockey sticks out on their front porch to honor the players and just in case those lost might need them.
