The Humboldt Broncos continue to heal and rebuild as they prepare to return to the ice next season.

On April 6, a bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game in Nipawin collided with a semi-trailer north of Tisdale. Sixteen people died and 13 others were injured in the crash.

Over the weekend, the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) held a dispersal draft to provide additional players for the team.

In total, 10 players were reallocated from other SJHL teams.

Flin Flon Bombers were exempted from the draft by the Broncos and a future player selection will come from the Estevan Bruins.

The league posted on social media the results of the dispersal draft. These players will join the others who were selected in the SJHL Bantam Draft.
