"We just opened our building here with food and drinks ... they can come if they need somewhere to go or someone to talk to", he said.

The team was on the way to Nipawin for a playoff game when the crash happened.

On Friday, RCMP officials confirmed a crash that occurred at the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 335, north of the town of Tisdale resulted in multiple fatalities.

"I want to say to the families that this is a time to pull together and not apart and to really be there to support one another", Kennedy told CTV Calgary on Friday night.

"There are casualties and it's very bad".

"It's bad. It's absolutely awful". "There's not a lot of confirmed information at this point". When they hear that there's fatalities and then they wonder if it's their kid.

"We don't know who has passed and we don't expect to know right away", he said.

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, said he knows players on the team. All these young men and boys.

STARS air ambulance says it has sent two helicopters to the scene.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating the accident, according to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. "We ask during this time that you don't send messages. It is sort of every parent's worst nightmare", he said.

"Humboldt Broncos weighing heavy in our hearts and minds tonight", the team said on Twitter.

Four members of the Swift Current Broncos were killed in a bus crash in Saskatchewan in 1986.

Sympathies from across Canada, including from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and Saskatchewan NDP Leader Ryan Meili, poured in after news of the crash broke.

The players are aged between 16-21-years-old. "My heart goes out to everyone affected by this awful tragedy".

"From a grieving province, thank you to every one of the first responders and medical professionals for your courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is a Junior "A" hockey league under Hockey Canada, which is part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League. "I think what we've learned, speaking to others tonight that experienced the accident we were on, is the magnitude of the impact of an accident like this on all of our lives - individuals that survived, families that lost loved ones".
